Our mountain communities are closed to snowplay visitors this weekend due to large snow drifts. Chains are MANDATORY if you exit the freeway. All violations will be strictly enforced. Drivers that stop on the freeway for any reason other than an emergency will be ticketed. pic.twitter.com/JP062Th7ZQ— CHP Fort Tejon (@CHPFortTejon) December 28, 2019
