Repairs Begin For Washed Out Sections of San Gabriel Canyon Road (SR-39) in Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel Mountains National Monument

Caltrans has begun repairs to several storm damaged sections of San Gabriel Canyon Road (SR-39) 11 miles north of Azusa.  The highway has been closed to public access since January 6 at East Fork Road.  

During heavy rains in January, mud and debris flows blocked drainage systems and washed out support slopes along the highway (post mile 28.0 to post mile 31.0) in the Cabin fire burn area.  

To open the highway, Caltrans will rebuild washed out slopes and clear the sediment/debris basins and drains.

No permitted access will be granted to the construction zone or locations beyond the closure during and after work hours.
