Angeles Crest Highway Reopens After 18 Months of Repairs
Officials opened a 7-mile stretch of Angeles Crest Highway on Friday that had been closed for nearly 18 months. Parts of the 66-mile highway that extends north from the 2 freeway in La Cañada Flintridge through Angeles National Forest to Wrightwood had been closed after January 2010 mudslides in the Station Fire burn area badly damaged sections of the road.
Dozens of bikers, cyclist, and aficionados of the scenic drive came out for the official opening, according to the L.A. Times.
