Anyone traveling to Las Vegas or heading home for the weekend needs to wait, after Caltrans warned that the major thruway between Los Angeles and the party destination had been shut down.

Interstate 15 has been closed in both directions from Baker to Primm --
across the Nevada state line -- after multiple car wrecks and ice on the road. The freeway remained closed early Friday when crew were working to remove about 3 feet from snow and ice.

It was not immediately clear when the roadway will reopen after Caltrans 8 warned about the closure at 4 p.m.

Caltrans was asking drivers to avoid taking the 15. Another closure along the route in the Cajon Pass has been lifted.
