Driving on Interstate 5

Driving on Interstate 5

Posted: Mar. 2, 2018 6:26 PM

Redding, Calif -- Interstate 5 makes up a big portion of traveling from southern to northern California.
The latest storm, however, has made the drive in the northern stretch more dangerous.
Drivers heading up and down I-5 could see winter like conditions near the O' Brien exit, with accidents hitting Salt Creek Road.
"If you are definitely heading up there and have a vehicle – a lot of these new cars you cant put chains on .. So if you cant put chains on don’t go," said CHP Officer Morton. 
For Lynn Bowe who is traveling from out of state, these warnings were enough to put a halt on her weekend plans.
“Well we thought we might go to see Mt. Shasta but guess what .. We aren’t going to go there because they’re advising us to not drive up there its too snowy " said Bowe. 
But for Redding locals, who have enjoyed a drier Friday, they say the rain,  if it comes, wont stop their plans.
“I'm kind of used to this kind of weather lived her all my life so we’re just getting through it," said John Gamino
