RENO, Nev. (AP) — Interstate 80 has reopened with no chain controls in the Sierra Nevada after another round of snow forced restrictions and snarled traffic with more than a dozen crashes on slippery roads in Reno.
At least 18 traffic accidents were reported Tuesday during the morning commute in Reno-Sparks, where up to 4 inches of snow fell. No serious injuries were reported.
Chain controls that had been mandatory on a 55-mile stretch of I-80 west of the California-Nevada line were lifted late Tuesday afternoon. Ten inches of new snow was reported above Lake Tahoe at Incline Village.
