FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Bernardino County – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) advises that the Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2) from Vincent’s Gap to Islip Saddle has closed for the remainder of the 2012/2013 winter. This 10-mile section of SR-2 just west of Wrightwood closes annually during snow season due to high snow drifts and unmanageable conditions.

Caltrans has set Memorial Day Weekend 2013 as the target date to re-open the route. 


For more roadwork information, please go to www.caltrans8.info and sign up for Commuter Alerts under “CT Connect”.

Remember the new “Move Over” law. When you see highway workers or emergency responders on the highway, slow down and move over – for your safety and theirs.
