Roads closed at noon today in burn area







The Los Angeles County Public Works Department has announced that due to the forecast weekend storm, it will close public access to almost all County roads within the Station Fire burn area as of 12 noon today, Friday, February 5, 2010. 


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.  However, the road will be closely monitored during the storm and subject to closure if conditions warrant.


The remainder of Big Tujunga Canyon Road, the Angeles Forest Highway, and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road, will close to all traffic except emergency vehicles, including Public Works personnel.  Residents living in the burn areas will not be permitted to use the roads until the closures are lifted 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 to all traffic.
