Westbound Interstate 80 near the Nevada state line reopened to traffic late Thursday after being closed for about six hours due to a mudslide.

The mudslide, triggered by rainstorms, was reported about 4 p.m. and occurred about 4 miles west of the California-Nevada border, according to the California Department of Transportation. Westbound lanes at Farad Road were covered with mud and debris.

Westbound traffic was held at the state line. One eastbound lane also was initially closed to allow westbound traffic to turn around. The westbound lanes were reopened at 10 p.m.
