Authorities Re-Open Mountain Roads Sunday

Workers spent the morning removing debris from the roads.

MT. WILSON (CNS) - Two mountain roads linking the Antelope Valley to the L.A. basin were re-opened today, after rocks, snow and ice were removed over two days of storms, county officials said.

Angeles Forest Highway and Upper Big Tujunga Road were re-opened before noon, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works said. they had been closed since Friday.

Together, the roads form a back country link across the San Gabriel Mountains that is frequently used by motorists avoiding the longer, congested but lower-elevation freeways via Newhall Pass.

Angeles Forest Highway has a summit at Mill Creek Station, where the elevation is 4,910 feet. Today's snow level was predicted to be 6,500 feet, rising to 7,000 feet Monday, the National Weather Service said.
