Today, Friday, June 3, officials are set to reopen the section of California Highway 2 between La Cañada Flintridge and the Angeles Forest after a morning news conference just outside of the Angeles National Forest entrance. The Angeles National Forest reopened recently to hikers and visitors, who can now access hiking trails and camp sites in the area. National Forest travelers and motorists looking to go to Wrightwood and California Highway 138 will once again be able to travel through Angeles Crest.

The road was first closed during the Station Fire in August 2009, it then reopened three months later only to close again in January 2010. The area has been closed off since January 2010 when heavy rain fell in the Station Fire burn area and washed away major portions of pavement through the Angeles National Forest. Officials had hoped to reopen the highway on New Year’s Day of this year until December rain triggered new rockslides and increased concerns about hillside stability. So, without further ado, take a weekend drive up to Angeles Crest and enjoy the newly paved roads!
