Roads through wildfire-damaged sections of the Angeles National Forest will reopen Nov. 30, officials said Tuesday. Parts of the Angeles Forest Highway, Angeles Crest Highway and Big Tujunga Canyon and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon roads that were closed due to the Aug. 26 fire will be reopened about 5 a.m. Monday. Anything more than a light shower, however, may prompt a new round of closings. Denuded hillsides are likely to produce slides when saturated. Work being done by the county Department of Public Works and Caltrans may create intermittent traffic delays, but most of the work has been done, county officials said.
Notice of closings due to rain will be relayed via message boards, news radio alerts, news releases, and commuters will be able to get e-mail alerts via www.dpwcare.gov and http://gis.dpw.lacounty.gov/roadclosures/main.cfm
While the roads will reopen, all campsites and backcountry trails remain off limits.
