BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Amid current weather conditions, Caltrans District 7 posted on Twitter a recently installed swinging gate on I5 in Castaic.

The gate is said to be about 300 feet north of Lake Hughes Road in Castaic.

When the interstate is closed because of ice and/or snow on the Grapevine, it will be rolled open to create a turnaround across the median, officials said.
