Angeles Crest Highway re-opens

leave a comment »

State officials re-opened Angeles Crest (2) Highway early today, but warned that the steep hillsides remained fragile.

The highway and other roads were closed earlier this month after rainstorms sent debris flows and rocks onto the highway. Crews will continue to clear debris from drainage sites and road shoulders, which may cause some traffic delays, according to the California Department of Transportation.

Big Tujunga Canyon Road and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road were re-opened earlier this week.

Officials warned that future winter storms may force them to close Angeles Crest Highway again. There was a 20% chance of rain tonight through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
