State Route 27 is closed between Fairfield and Tekoa because large drifts and blowing snow have made the road impassable.
Crews have been working tirelessly to clear SR 27 near Tekoa. They even brought out the giant blower to help in the process. Please be patient they are dealing with deep snow drifts and more snow now falling.
Thanks to our crews for their hard work! pic.twitter.com/MI7FNfQDpI
