Weather Alert: Storm to Force Road Closures Wednesday

Two mountain roads will be shut down Wednesday ahead of heavy snow forecasts.

Public access will be closed to two mountain roads Thursday night in anticipation of heavy snowfall expected to cause icy road conditions, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

Closures begin Wednesday December 12, 2012, at 10 p.m. and will affect the following two roads:

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

"Local access will not be permitted until the road closures are lifted," according to a public works news release. "The closures will remain in effect until the storm system has passed and the roads have been inspected."
