Highway 2 in Angeles National Forest Expected to Open Late Spring
One of the most important access points to the Angeles National Forest has been cut off since a winter rainstorm washed away a slope after the 2009 Station Fire. Nearly a year and a half later, the Angeles Crest Highway is close to reopening.
Caltrans officials said today that State Route 2, as it is officially dubbed, is expected to open in "late spring," which, of course, is subject to change. The damaged slope 2.5 miles east of La Cañada Flintridge has been repaired, but workers still have to install new piping, rebuild asphalt berms, and repave and oil the highway.
The news comes on the heels of Monday's reopening of over 100 miles of trails and several recreational areas of the forest, also damaged by the Station Fire. SR-2 is currently closed between La Cañada Flintridge and the Angeles Forest Highway, but another major roadway, Big Tujunga Canyon Road, remains open.
