Weather closes Sonora and Ebbett's passes


 Caltrans has closed Sonora and Ebbett's Passes because of bad weather, just as the Memorial Day Weekend travel begins.

Angela DaPrato of Caltrans said the agency closed both popular routes just a short time ago because of snow. Sonora Pass on Highway 108 may open sometime tomorrow, pending weather conditions.

DaPrato said Caltrans has no projected reopening for Ebbett's Pass on Highway 4.

At this time, the Tioga Road, Highway 120 in Yosemite National Park, remains open.
