Caltrans Answers Your Questions: San Gabriel Canyon Road (SR-39)

Q: When will the closed section of SR-39 in the Angeles National Forest open to the public?

A: Unfortunately, the current condition of the highway is unsafe for public use and will remain closed indefinitely.

Currently, Caltrans has four projects to repair sections of the highway that were washed away by heavy storms. The projects will help ensure that the highway can be used as a service road for Caltrans maintenance, CHP, US Forest Service and other public safety vehicles that need to reach various parts of the Angeles National Forest for regular and emergencies operations.
