Traffic Alert: Laurel Canyon Blvd closure causes increased traffic on Beverly Glen and Coldwater Canyon

The current closures on Laurel Canyon Blvd. remain in place as the City continues to assess the public safety situation.  Because of the weather, city agencies will not be able to assess the stability of the hillside and the homes until the rain subsides.  We hope to have a more definitive timeline for reopening and a more detailed traffic plan once City crews return tomorrow.       

 The City now has set up a webpage to provide updates:  which includes a map.  Please continue to check the site regularly for information:
