SANTA CRUZ (KRON) — Students at the University of California Santa Cruz have shut down Highway 17 in Santa Cruz as part of a protest over tuition hikes.

The southbound side of the road is closed south of Ocean Street (CA-1 N).

All lanes are currently blocked.

CHP is asking drivers to use alternate routes.
