All lanes could close if erosion continues
REDLANDS, Calif. (KYMA/NBC News) - A huge hole in a highway made the drive to Thanksgiving dinner a little dangerous for people in Southern California.
A mudslide caused a drain along Highway 50 in Redlands to collapse. The collapse took a huge chunk of the roadway with it.
Caltrans quickly shut down two of the four eastbound lanes, and started making repairs.
The lane closures caused a serious traffic backup.
Caltrans says if that portion of the highway keeps eroding, engineers will have to shut down all eastbound lanes.
