The California Highway Patrol has reopened Interstate 5 over the Grapevine and Highway 58 through Tehachapi after closing them Saturday morning due to snow and ice.

Both opened about 1:30 p.m. after having been closed for several hours. Previously, the 58 had been closed heading east at Tower Line Road in Bakersfield, and heading west, at one mile west of Mojave.

The CHP continues to urge caution in that area.
