A large tree was reported down and blocking both lanes on Lakeshore Drive in Clearlake Park Friday at about 6:47 p.m. .County road crews responded to clear the road, which took just under three hours to complete.

CHP officers will remain out in force through Sunday as part of a seasonal maximum enforcement period in response to the holidays.
