Big Hole in the Valley Is Effing Up Traffic

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

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.
