I know this news is going to be horrible for a hell of a lot of people who live in North Hollywood and work south of the hills, but Laurel Canyon between Mullholland and Hollywood Blvd has been closed because of some sliding hillsides. Actually, that’s pretty bad news for a lot of people who live in Hollywood hills too. I’m not surprised at all, over here in Silver Lake it’s hard to drive down a street without a lane being blocked off with orange cones and half of a hillside spilling out over the sidewalk. There’s slippage on Glendale Blvd north and south of Silver Lake Blvd, and on the Silver Lake Blvd to 101 on ramp – but these are two lane roads becoming one – Laurel Canyon is a whole other story. That’s a major artery for a lot of people and this is going to cause some crazy traffic and delays until things are back in order. Ouch.
UPDATE: Good News – One lane has been reopened! Bad News – Mud slide threat could last for months!
