I-5 reopens through burn zone near Oregon/California border; conditions could change
ASHLAND, Ore. - Interstate 5 reopened Friday morning after a wildfire exploded in northern California on Thursday, prompting officials to halt traffic.
Oregon DOT said CalFire is allowing I-5 to reopen to traffic - but to "expect major delays and congestion."
ODOT and Oregon State Police "will meter and escort several hundred vehicles through the burn zone southbound from MP 11, south of Ashland."
CalTrans and the California Highway Patrol will do the same northbound for traffic stopped at Yreka..
