SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Caltrans District 2 is advising motorists of a 2-hour delay on northbound I-5 south of Shasta Lake.

Caltrans said the delay is partially due to construction work at the Pit River Bridge, but it is also because of the high volume of vehicles on I-5. 

The agency asks motorists to avoid the area until after 7 p.m. when traffic is expected to clear up.
