Chain Controls in Effect for Parts of Shasta County

And in eastern Shasta County chain controls were in effect for commercial vehicles most of Tuesday and heading into Wednesday.

In Shingletown, Highway 44 was mostly clear thanks to plow operators from Cal Trans and Shasta County patrolling up and down the highway throughout Tuesday morning and afternoon.

But despite the main road being clear for now, Cal Trans public information officer Chris Woodward said drivers still need to pay special attention to roads when traveling.

“I know it’s sunny here in the valley,” Cal Trans public information officer Chris Woodward said. “But in the mountains, we still have a lot of chain controls with the cold conditions. So any motorists that are heading out into the mountains still be prepared for some winter weather conditions.”

Woodward says even though chains aren't required on the highway for passenger vehicles, it’s a good idea to have them with you just in case.

He also recommends checking road and weather conditions before traveling out of the area.
