SUN VALLEY (CBSLA.com) – Interstate 5 in Sun Valley reopened Saturday morning after flooding and mudslides had shut down the freeway overnight following Friday’s storm. All southbound lanes of Interstate 5 were reopened as of 9:40 a.m. at Sheldon Street, Caltrans reported. Two of the five northbound lanes were also open. The freeway closure began Friday afternoon when several feet of water came rushing down onto the freeway from the side of an overpass, unearthing mud and dirt. The mudslides left several drivers stalled and stranded. Some drivers called 911 to report water coming into their cars. #CAStorm I-5 at Sheldon update: all SOUTHBOUND lanes open, 2 NORTHBOUND lanes open with 3 lanes remaining closed #LARain — Caltrans District 7 (@CaltransDist7) February 18, 2017 Caltran crews would be continuing cleanup efforts throughout the day Saturday.
