ALPINE, Calif. (KGTV) - Snow and ice caused Caltrans to close down both direction of I-8 Thursday night from SR-79 (Japatul Valley Rd.) to E. Willows Dr.

The closure went into effect around 10 p.m.

Snow plows were on scene clearning lanes and dumping salt and sand.

Below freezing temperatures are expected overnight, increasing the possibility of black ice.
