SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. – Highway 154 reopened Thursday afternoon, after it was closed for more than eight hours due to a rock slide and weather conditions.

According to Montecito Fire, Highway 154 was expected to be closed all day.

Caltrans tweeted that both sides of the highway had reopened as of 3 p.m. Thursday.
