Angeles forest roads in burn area to close due to Southland storm

Due to the forecasted weekend storm, the Los Angeles County Public Works Department closed public access to almost all County roads within the Station Fire burn area at noon today.

The segment of Big Tujunga Canyon Road from the Los Angeles city limit to Vogel Flats Road will remain open to residents and construction crews, but the road will be costly monitored and may be closed, depending on weather conditions.

The rest of Big Tujunga Canyon Road, the Angeles Forest Highway, and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road will close to all traffic other than emergency vehicles. Residents in the burn area will not be allowed to use the roads until the closures are left after the threat of rain or the storm system has passed and roadway debris and damage inspections are completed.

Angeles Crest Highway (SR2) remains closed.
