In addition Hwy 395 from Susanville to the Nevada border continues to be no exception to the hazardous winter weather conditions. The highway was closed for over 12 hours during the thick of the recent snowfall. Multiple vehicles were abandoned on the side of the road from losing control and spinning into the side of the roadway. LC Sheriff Growdon shared they had to work with the Susanville community Church to set up a shelter for those who were stranded overnight. Following the re-opening drivers are continuing to lose control and are ending up on the side of the roadway in addition to the multiple rollovers. If you are planning travel along 395, slow down, do not attempt passing, and plan ahead for the extended travel time.
