EL DORADO COUNTY (CBS13) — The closure of Highway 50 has some residents following their GPS into other closed roads.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is warning people to be cautious when trying to find a way around the closure, and if it’s a road you’re not familiar with and you see snow on the road, or the road turn to dirt, it’s time to turn around.
