REDDING, Calif. - Clean up continues in Redding after last week's snowstorm.

Crews have been working non-stop since the storm first hit last Wednesday.

First, they cleared snow off the roadways, and now they’re working to clear the trees which gave way due to that snow.

“We basically have hundreds of trees that we need to deal with that have fallen from the storm,” said Caltrans public information officer Chris Woodward. “So I-5, 44, 299 in the area, our crews are working on that. Our maintenance crews have been doing an outstanding job. They've been getting a lot of these trees taken care of at a very quick rate.”

Woodward says the rest area on southbound I-5 in Lakehead is also closed right now because of safety concerns related to downed trees.

He says they're working crews from the California Conservation Corps to clear the debris and hopefully have it back open by early next week.

As for I-5, they say it could take two to four weeks for tree cleanup to be complete.

So, they remind drivers to slow down and be careful around road crews.

Staying hot and hazy today, but relief from the heat is on the way for the middle of this week. We'll also have the potential for mountain thunderstorms on Wednesday. The heat returns this weekend.
