Southern California will be hit by a big storm Friday night, and that means road closures, dangerous driving, massive traffic jams and a tough commute.
And don’t even speculate how tough things will be at Los Angeles International Airport.
And it all comes during one of the busiest travel times of the year as residents hit the highways and airports for the Christmas holiday weekend.
Authorities urged travelers to leave plenty of extra time for the getaways and be prepared for wet-weather delays.
A portion of Bouquet Canyon Road in Angeles National Forest will be closed Friday afternoon in advance of heavy rain expected Friday night.
The road closure will take place at noon and continue throughout the weekend or until road conditions allow, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.
The road will be closed between the gate approximately six miles south of Spunky Canyon Road — near mile marker 12.55, just south of Big Oaks Lodge — and the gate near the southern boundary of Angeles National Forest — near mile marker 15.97, two miles north of Vasquez Canyon Road.
Once the storm passes Department of Public Works personnel will inspect the roadway and open it when appropriate.
County road closure information is available at http://dpw.lacounty.gov/roadclosures.
