The following information was collected in response to a question about how to obtain current information about road conditions in the San Gabriel Mountains. Many of these sources also give additional information about the San Gabriel Mountains.
There are multiple jurisdictions for roads through the San Gabriel Mountains. The Forest Service cannot close or open roads; only CHP, CalTrans and LA County or San Bernardino County Public Works can. Note that the Angeles Crest Highway, SR2, is divided between two CalTrans divisions at Islip Saddle.
