Reroute due to Land Slide
Highway 2 between Red Box and Shortcut is still closed due to road work building a retaining wall. We hope that repairs will be finished in July, but it is a very big task for CalTrans. This the link to the detour is shown below, coming from La Canada, turn left on Angeles Forest Highway, then right on Upper Big Tujunga, and left when you return to Highway 2. CalTrans has posted orange detour signs at the turns as well that point out the route. The drive time from La Canada to Shortcut is about 10 minutes longer. The drive time from Shortcut to Red Box is about 40 minutes. See the map below:
