Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2) Open to Wrightwood

CALTRANS COMMUTER ALERT

STATE ROUTE 2 OPEN!

Caltrans District 8 (Riverside and San Bernardino counties) has cleared away the remnants of this past winter and  repaired State Route 2. It re-opened from winter closure between Vincents Gap and Islip Saddle today at 11:15 am.

This stretch of mountain highway, located west of Wrightwood leading to Los Angeles County, typically closes every winter due to heavy snow, avalanche activity, and concern for motorist safety and does not reopen until Memorial Day.

Maintenance crews were able to clear the route of debris, clean the drainage facilities, and prepare the roadway for opening to the traveling public and sightseeing enthusiasts.

Motorists are advised that the route is subject to closure in the event of any
future snow fall, storms, or other unforeseen events.
