[UPDATE: Reopened] HWY 299 CLOSED !! Berry Summit still a mess
Hwy 299 is closed due to accidents involving several semi- trucks. They either broke their chains in the westbound lanes or got stuck near Berry Summit (Mile Marker 31.33). All traffic is parked going both ways currently. Caltrans is saying to use chains on vehicles that are not 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. CHP is stretched thin up on Hwy 299 with no less than five accidents on Hwy 299 in the last couple hours.
UPDATE: 299 Reopened
