Highway 20 reopened to traffic

LAKE COUNTY – Highway 20 is once again open for travelers between Highway 53 and Interstate 5.

Caltrans and the California Highway Patrol reopened the highway at about 5 a.m. Saturday.

The highway was closed late Friday night due to flooding and mudslides.

CHP is still reporting mud and debris at other points along the highway as it follows the Northshore, specifically near Clearlake Oaks.

Friday's heavy rains triggered the flooding and slide activity.
