Storm Brings Road Controls To Sierra

A fairly mild Pacific storm has dropped enough snow in the Sierra to bring out some driving controls.

Chains are mandatory this morning on U-S 50 over Echo Summit from four miles west of the junction with California 89 and ten and one-half miles east of Kyburz.

Chains or snow tires also are required over the Mount Rose summit south of Reno.

It's chains or snow tires on California 89 between Bliss State Park and Tahoma and on California 88 between Hams Station and Peddlar Hill with chains mandatory on 88 between Peddlar Hill and the junction with California 89.
