Colby Fire: Angeles National Forest Roads May Reopen Soon [Updated]
[Update, 5:30 p.m., Friday, January 24: Caltrans has extended its deadline for opening San Gabriel Canyon Road (State Route 39) to Sunday. L.A. County has extended its estimated opening date for Glendora Mountain and Glendora Ridges roads to Monday.]
A number of roads closed due to last week's Colby Fire remain closed in Angeles National Forest, but could open soon. They are:
- San Gabriel Canyon Road (State Route 39): Caltrans closed this road because of falling rocks and debris in the burn area, although residents and business owners have been allowed access. The agency expects to reopen it Saturday.
- Glendora Mountain and Glendora Ridge roads: These two roads have been closed since a few days before the fire broke out. They remain closed at the Forest Service's request (here's why) as red flag conditions continue. L.A. County, which maintains them, expects to open them on Friday.
As always, road openings are subject to change. Check with Angeles National Forest ranger stations before heading out.
