Big Hole in the Valley Is Effing Up Traffic

If you're heading to one of the Canoga Park nightlife hotspots to spend your Saturday, try an alternate route: a water main under Topanga Canyon Blvd. broke this morning, opening a big hole and flooding the street.

City News Service reports southbound Topanga is closed from Victory to Oxnard and will probably stay closed until at least 8 p.m. while crews try to patch the hole.

With any luck, someone will throw the Sherman Oaks Galleria in there before they fix it.
