Falling rocks and debris in the Colby Fire burn area along State Route 39 in the Angeles National Forest have forced Caltrans to close off the highway until a barrier is put in place. The San Gabriel Canyon Road is expected to reopen Saturday, but until then only residents and business owners are being permitted access.
