Angeles Forest Highway, Big Tujunga Canyon Road, and Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road, will be closed to all traffic except emergency vehicles and county personnel beginning on Friday, Dec. 11 at 11:59 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

Based on the National Weather Service's forecast for stormy weather this weekend, the DPW officials have determined that all roads within the Station Fire burn area should be closed until the heavy rainfall passes.

Residents living in the burn areas will not be permitted to use the roads until the closures are lifted.

Public Works will reopen the roads after the threat of rain or the storm system has passed and debris and damage inspections of the roadways are completed.

Bob Spencer, public affairs manager for Public Works, reminded residents that during the winter storm season these roads would be closed when moderate to heavy rainfalls are forecast for the area.

"The safety of motorists using these roads is our No. 1 priority," Spencer said. "We urge residents to continue to monitor news broadcasts, or visit the CARE Web site at for further updates as this weekend storm front approaches."
