Wildfire-caused highway closures, road construction and early holiday travelers are slowing I-5 travelers on both sides of the southern Oregon and northern California border.
U.S. 97 remains closed due to two northern California wildfires near Weed. Traffic is also affected north of Redding by the Salt Fire. Caltrans closed the interstate north of Redding earlier today for a short time impacting travel in the corridor. Caltrans officials are monitoring the fire for other possible interstate delays.
Traffic that normally uses U.S. 97 is adding to the amount of traffic using Interstate 5. South of Ashland, a construction project is limiting traffic to a single lane in each direction at several locations. Additional lanes cannot be accommodated due to the bridge work.
Interstate 5 users should review travel times and plan for delays and congestion or consider alternate routes to get to their destinations.
