COLFAX (CBS13) - All lanes of Interstate 80 in the Sierra are blocked due to a mudslide, Caltrans says.

The scene is near Baxter. Caltrans reports the slide happened a little before 10 a.m. Friday.

Due to the slide, both directions of I-80 are closed. The eastbound side is closed at Colfax, while the westbound side is closed at Donner Lake Interchange in Truckee.

Caltrans doesn't know at this point when the road will be reopened.

Highway 20 at Yuba Pass is open to passengers cars only, Caltrans says.
