CalTrans Clears Mud on I-80 Near Farad After Rainstorm

Posted: Updated:

Caltrans closed a portion of Interstate 80 near Farad Thursday afternoon after a mudslide flowed onto the roadway.

Since then, Caltrans has told Channel 2 News that the agency maintains the roadway on a regular basis, but sometimes strong rainstorm can overrun the area's drainage systems.

Caltrans cleared away mud and debris, and reopened the east and west lanes a few hours after the storm. Thursday's incident comes a few weeks after a different mudslide blocked the same area of the roadway.
