Carbon Canyon Road in Brea, which had been closed since Thursday due to mudslides triggered by heavy rainfall, was reopened to all traffic this afternoon.
“We have quite a bit of mud along the length of Carbon Canyon so they’ve been working to clean it off the past couple of days. But with the continuing rain, it just got worse and worse,” Brea police Lt. Darrin Devereux said just before the major thoroughfare between Orange and San Bernardino counties reopened this afternoon.
Officials had not expected to completely reopen the closed stretch from Santa Fe to the county line until noon Wednesday, Devereux said.
Until this afternoon, residents of Olinda Village had been escorted into and out of their neighborhood by Caltrans workers, Devereux said.
For the most part, commuters were mindful of the road closure and took alternate routes such as the Riverside (91) Freeway, Devereux said.
