The other 20 or so closures is because some damn big rig that jack knifed. The fuel trucks seem to do it more than anyone forcing Haz-mat closures for hours.
It's because we have to come out empty, and they send us around the pass. Having us go around the pass is completely ridiculous these days.....
They'd rather us go over a way more risky road and heighten our chances of falling off the hill vs just letting us take the easy road and maybe burn up somewhere not over a cliff
