Storm forecast leads to road closures in Angeles National Forest

February 7, 2013 |  7:51 pm

Even though it was sunny most of Thursday, forecasts for a cold, fast-moving storm that's expected to bring with it snow and ice in mountain areas through Friday morning prompted Los Angeles County authorities to shut down some stretches of road in the Angeles National Forest.

The closures are scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Thursday and "will remain in effect until the storm system has passed and the roads have been inspected," according to an advisory from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The stretches that will be closed are:

  • Angeles Forest Highway from SR-2 (Angeles Crest Highway) to Aliso Canyon Road
  • Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road from Angeles Forest Highway to SR-2 (Angeles Crest Highway).

The advisory also stated that "local access will not be permitted until the road closures are lifted."
