Storm damage along Mulholland Drive

The commute between the Valley and the Westside got a little tougher after damage from the recent rains closed a portion of Mulholland Drive.

A section of the scenic road in Studio City was washed out, and it's unclear when it will be repaired. Westbound traffic on Mulholland is restricted between Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon Avenue.

The closure was backing up traffic at various times on Laurel Canyon and other canyon roads.

It's one of more than a dozen road closures from Malibu to Mt. Baldy caused by the bad weather.

Here are some highlights compiled by City News Service:

-- Rambla Pacifico Road is closed between Las Flores Road and Azurelee Drive in Malibu.

-- Glendora Mountain Road from Big Dalton Canyon Road to East Fork Road is closed due to icy conditions, according to the county Department of Public Works.

-- Glendora Ridge Road from Glendora Mountain Road to Mt. Baldy Road is closed due to snow.

-- Mt. Emma Road from Cheseboro Road to 87th Street East.

-- Mt. Wilson-Red Box Road from Video Road to Angeles Crest Highway.

-- Big Tujunga Canyon Road from the Los Angeles city line to Angeles Forest Highway.

-- Angeles Forest Highway from Angeles Crest Highway to Big Tujunga Canyon Road; a 20-foot section was destroyed during the January storms, and the road is expected to be closed until March.

-- Angeles Forest Highway from Big Tujunga Canyon Road to Aliso Canyon Road.

-- Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to Angeles Crest Highway.

-- Stonyvale Road, from 1,200 feet west of Vogel Flats Road to 4,000 feet west of Vogel Flats Road, near the Big Tujunga Ranger Station.

-- Angeles Crest Highway is closed to the public from La Cañada Flintridge to Islip Saddle and is expected to remain closed until late March.
