NO LATER THAN April 22, 10:16 a.m. The California Highway Patrol lifted its chain check on Donner Pass at 10 a.m. Friday following a severe spring storm that caused major havoc on roads in the Tahoe area.
And it’s a wrap!! Chain control lifted on I-80 over Donner Summit!!
This latest storm reminds us of how unpredictable the weather is in our area, as we can have snow storms in the spring and sometimes even in June. pic.twitter.com/nvisk2bcEB

But while the lifting of chain checks means the roads are safer for travellers, perils remain this morning, as evidenced by two tractor trucks and trailers blocking the road near Emerald Bay.
