FREMONT (KRON) — All lanes of Highway 84 in Fremont have reopened after a mudslide has closed the freeway Sunday afternoon, according to the Fremont Police Department.

Caltrans announced around 7:30 p.m. on social media that the highway reopened.

Debris spilling from the side of a cliff onto Niles Canyon Road a quarter mile east of Palomares Road made it inaccessible to traffic at this time.

The closure was announced around 1:55 p.m.

Police say Cal Trans was notified, and responded to the clean-up.

Drivers were being asked to take alternate routes.

The recent storms have caused mudslides and debris to limit access to Bay Area roads this week.
