Niles Canyon Road reopens after mudslide

Niles Canyon Road in Fremont has reopened Monday morning after having been closed for hours earlier due to a mudslide, police said.

The road, which also serves as state Highway 84, is open in both directions, but police are asking drivers to proceed with caution.

Crews had closed the road early Monday morning between Fremont and the town of Sunol. Caltrans crews responded to the scene and assisted with clearing the mudslide, police said.
