PARADISE, Calif. -

A section of Honey Run Road in Paradise will remain closed this weekend due to ice still on the roadway.

Honey Run Road is closed between Merlin Lane and Little Grand Canyon Drive.
    
The California Highway Patrol ordered Friday that the road is to remain closed because of the dangerous driving conditions.
     
Officers said at least two drivers had to abandon their cars this week after they tried to drive on Honey Run Road.

"It has been warm; however, Honey Run Road has a lot of vegetation and there are a lot of parts of the roadway that are shaded.  It's not allowing that ice to melt," said CHP Officer Adriana Warner.

The California Highway Patrol said they have been monitoring the road daily and it will open back up once it's safe to drive on.
