UPDATE, 11:40 a.m.:

According to the CHP incident report, one-way traffic control is set up in the area. The Department of Transportation is funneling traffic through the southbound lane. 

Senator Mike McGuire tweeted a photo of the slide (seen above) minutes ago and stated that the Highway could be closed again at any time due to inclement weather.
