Another key roadway in Yosemite National Park closed at noon Wednesday as part of a firefighting defense against the massive Rim fire, a closure that blocks the east-west route across the park and one expected to remain in effect through Labor Day weekend. Tioga Road, also known as Highway 120, was closed between Tamarack Flat and Yosemite Creek campgrounds, a roughly 18-mile stretch that makes access to popular Yosemite Valley from the east an incredibly long drive-around.  "That will limit the access for visitors to and from the east side of the park, quite possibly over Labor Day weekend, which will have a significant economic impact on the area and [be]

California's winter weather is being blamed for the deaths of four homeless people, the closure of major roads and serious losses for citrus farmer in the middle of a harvest. The cold snap, part of a nationwide chill caused by a cold front from the Arctic, is expected to continue into the middle of next week in most areas. Rain, snow and snow flurries are expected through Saturday night, with sub-zero temperatures predicted overnight up and down the state. "The cold snap is just beginning here in Los Angeles, but it's pretty painful all across California," said Bill Patzert, a climatologist with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge.

A road near Janss mall may be closed through the end of next week because of a 10-foot sinkhole that developed after this week's torrential storm, officials said Thursday. City crews will need at least that long to repair Hillcrest Drive between Moorpark Road and Conejo Boulevard and to replace 85 feet of a 30-inch corroded storm drain, said Sheriff's Sgt. Claude Robillard.

Rocks and debris continue to roll down onto the canyon road, covered last Friday by a dirt slide estimated to be about 200 feet high and 150 feet wide, said Donna Guyovich, spokeswoman for Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

It isn't easy being the only restaurant for a 57-mile stretch of Angeles Crest Highway. The 20 inches of rain that are expected to fall on the San Gabriel Mountains this week, and the closure of California 2 above Mt. Wilson on Sunday, are just the latest in a series of calamities that have befallen Newcomb's Ranch in the last six months. Since August, the high-altitude eatery has been threatened by fire, mudslides, road access issues -- and even the Air Quality Management District, which fined the restaurant for using a diesel generator after Southern California Edison's electricity-distribution circuit for the area was fried in the Station fire.

If the result of a San Diego City Council committee hearing Monday is any indication, closing a dusty dirt road in North County might turn into a regional issue when the matter comes before the full council June 13. After an hour of testimony for and against closing Black Mountain Road west of Rancho Penasquitos, Councilman Ed Struiksma lost his temper and threatened--in fact, promised--that, if the east-west link between Penasquitos and the...

The storm system that continued to drop much-needed rain on the Southland Monday caused few problems in area valleys, other than an isolated, short-lived power outage and a brief closure of the Golden State Freeway north of Gorman. About 125 households in Arleta near the intersection of Osborne Street and Canterbury Avenue were without electricity for about 1 1/2 hours beginning about 2 a.m., said a Department of Water and Power spokeswoman. The cause of the outage was undetermined.

While a dozen workers tore into the pavement at a railroad crossing on Gonzales Road, drivers along the busy roadway were greeted by closure signs east of Oxnard Boulevard in both directions Tuesday. Despite the closure, which began at 7 a.m. Tuesday and is set to continue until Friday afternoon, traffic flowed well through most of the adjoining streets, officials said. "The one backup was on St.

A cold weather system headed toward L.A. County is expected to push snow levels down to 3,000 feet Saturday, prompting road closure alerts and warnings that travel on the Grapevine could be affected. The storm system could bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to as low as 3,000 feet, and up to 6 inches above 4,500 feet, according to the National Weather Service. The snow, combined with wind gusts of up to 55 mph, is expected to make traversing the Grapevine a challenge, forecasters warned.

As officials prepared Wednesday to close the main east-west route through Yosemite National Park to help firefighters gain access to the massive Rim fire, time was of the essence for a couple of tourists from Scotland. Earlier in the morning, Alan and Garcia Williamson were rushing to cram several days of sightseeing into a few hours and make it across Yosemite to Mammoth Lakes before the planned midday closure of Tioga Road. Firefighters planned to use the road through the park as they confronted the Rim fire, which had grown to roughly 281 square miles.

The Rev. Mary E. Haddad found it bizarre one recent Sunday to be telling the congregation at All Saints' Church in Beverly Hills to not bother showing up the morning of March 21. "Remember the Sabbath and keep it aerobic," the interim rector said. Officials of the Episcopal church had decided to cancel all four morning services on the day of the Los Angeles Marathon and hold one 6 p.m. service instead. "In 18 years of professional church work, I've never known anything to close church on a Sunday morning," Haddad said, adding that the decision speaks to L.A.'s automobile culture.
