Storm Forces Closure of I-80 on Friday before Busy Holiday Weekend
COLFAX -- Blinding snow and whiteout conditions forced the closure of Interstate 80 at Colfax. "I should probably go home, but I need to get up there so I’m going to wait it out," driver Matt Westphal said. Those who got an early start tried to get around the roadblock with no luck. "We tried to go up 49 and 20 and as we got up to 49 and 20 it was posted as Closed, so no detours," driver Lenin Salinas said.
