Angeles Crest Highway above La Cañada Flintridge is scheduled to reopen early next week, barring any delays in clean-up work from mudslides sustained last weekend, a Caltrans representative said Thursday.

The highway has been closed since Saturday, when the second in a series of three rainstorms caused debris and mud flows of land left barren of growth by the Station fire.

“We’re working on cleaning the debris,” said Caltrans spokeswoman Kelly Marcum, “and we should be opening [the highway] up early next week.

“We’ve got crews working around the clock,” she said.
