After a weekend of snow and rain, here are a few travel impacts to keep in mind.
Chains or snow tires are required on Highway 32 13 miles East of Forest Ranch.
Along Highway 36, chains are needed from 1 mi west of Belden to 9 mi west of the Junction of SR 89 (Plumas County).
You also need chains or snow tires 10 mi east of Quincy to 8 mi west of Blairsden.
Chains are required on all vehicles except 4-wheel-drive vehicles with snow tires on all 4 wheels from Blairsden to 1 mi east of Portola.
Please research chain control locations as Caltrans is currently working to update chain control descriptions for consistency with internet mapping, like Google maps & Mapquest.
If you're traveling, pack the car with a blanket, water and snacks just in case you get stuck.
