Angeles Crest Highway to reopen on Monday

leave a comment »

Angeles Crest Highway (2), which has been closed since late August due to damage sustained during the Station fire, is scheduled to reopen on Monday at 5 a.m., according to Los Angeles County Public Works officials.

Gary Boze, public works spokesman, said the department, working in conjuction with Caltrans, has completed extensive repairs to damaged paving and guard rails.

The reopening of the highway, however, is subject to weather conditions. In the case of moderate to heavy rainfall, Boze said, Angeles Crest will be closed until the threat has passed and road crews have completed safety inspections.

Some erosion was pushed onto the highway during a brief but intense rainstorm on Nov. 12, Boze said.
