Major Road Safety Project Coming to Angeles Forest Highway
Motorists who regularly use Angeles Forest Highway to commute between the Antelope Valley and the Los Angeles basin should anticipate longer travel times as a major highway improvement project gets underway in late April.
The seven-month project will enhance public safety with rehabilitated pavement, new pavement markers and rumble strips along a 16-mile stretch of the popular roadway from Angeles Crest Highway to one mile south of Aliso Canyon Road.
Construction generally will take place during off-peak traffic hours, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at least one travel lane will remain open for through traffic.
However, motorists should plan for increased travel times of up to 30 minutes and are encouraged to consider alternate routes, such as the Antelope Valley Freeway, or to take public transportation. Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line provides service from Lancaster and Palmdale to Glendale, Burbank, Union Station and points in between.
