(KNX 1070) -- The snow created havoc for motorists this long weekend.
Those headed to Big Bear this President's Day weekend were told to be prepared for a little extra traffic.
And that materialized in the form of hundreds of vehicles that ended up stuck on Highway 38 overnight Sunday because of icy conditions.
Highway 38 is re-open as of 4 a.m. Monday morning, according to Emily Leinen, Public Information Officer for Caltrans District 8 on Monday morning.
She said Highway 38 was closed "because people did not bring their chains and they attempted to drive in icy conditions. This caused a blockage and we were unable plow and service roads because it. Once vehicles were removed, we were able to clean the roads."
She emphasized that people need to bring snow chains.
There were news reports of people sleeping in their cars overnight or leaving their cars on the road. There were no injuries reported.
Highway 38, which takes motorists through the eastern Redlands area, is open at Hatchery Dr. Chains are required on all vehicles except four wheel drive vehicles with snow tires on all four wheels from Grout Creek Bridge to Big Bear Dam, according to the California Department of Transportation online.
