UPDATE (4:35 p.m.) - The Grapevine reopened shortly after 4 p.m. The closure led to increased traffic along Highway 101 through the Central Coast.

ORIGINAL STORY: After heavy snowfall and icy road conditions, I-5 or the Grapevine closed Wednesday morning.

Initially, Caltrans District 7 kept the road open, but after an hour announced it closed again.

While closed from Parker Road and Grapevine, the I-5 snow gate in Castaic was left open for drivers to turn back towards Los Angeles County.

With frequently changing road conditions, check Caltrans's Twitter or the closure page here, before you drive out to I-5.
