UPDATE: Northbound I-5 is has now re-opened, however the CHP is escorting cars through a stretch of the grapevine.
This particular stretch is still considered dangerous due to the heavy amounts of snow it received. The roads may still be icy in places, and the CHP will continue to escort convoys through the area until it is believed that cars can drive at reasonable speeds through the pass.
There was a slew of accidents yesterday morning when the harsh weather conditions that included hail, snow and ice first hit the area.
To bypass the I-5 through the Grapevine, simply take Highway 14 North to the 58 East. That will drop you in Bakersfield where you can continue on either the I-5 or Interstate 99.
