Angeles Crest Highway reopened after rain-related closure

December 21, 2009 |  2:19 pm

Authorities have reopened a roughly 40-mile stretch of Angeles Crest Highway that was closed for more than a week because weather conditions had made it unsafe.

The stretch from California 39 to La Cañada Flintridge was closed earlier this month as crews worked to clean debris from the roadway after heavy rains, said Patrick Chandler, a spokesman for the California Department of Transportation.

The highway was reopened shortly before midnight Sunday, Chandler said.
