Roads Closed Due to Station Fire to Reopen Monday Morning

Good news for motorists needing access to roads in the Angeles National Forest that have been closed since late-August due to the massive Station Fire. "Parts of the Angeles Forest Highway, Angeles Crest Highway and Big Tujunga Canyon and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon roads [...] will be reopened about 5 a.m. Monday," according to the Daily News.

Much of the repair work has been done, though drivers should expect some delays due to the efforts of the county Department of Public Works and Caltrans continuing to restore the roads. But the good news is only for drivers; people hoping to make use of the forest's recreational amenities will have to wait longer to get the all clear, as "all campsites and backcountry trails remain off limits." Information about road closures is maintained online via the LA County Dept. of Public Works.
