All lanes of the 5 Freeway in the Sun Valley area were opened Wednesday night after heavy debris flows spilled across the lanes and forced a shutdown that lasted for several hours, the California Highway Patrol said. After mud, water and rocks spilled across the freeway Wednesday afternoon, one southbound lane remained open. But a full shutdown near Sunland Boulevard was ordered shortly before 4 p.m. as crews worked to clear the lanes. The closure created a rush-hour nightmare, backing up traffic for miles as drivers looked for alternate routes.

Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon introduced a motion in City Council on Wednesday to change the name of one stretch of Sunland Boulevard to Sun Valley Boulevard. The affected portion of the street extends from Sherman Way to Stonehurst Avenue. Alarcon made the proposal at the request of Sun Valley residents and business people who felt that the name change would strengthen Sun Valley's community identity and distinguish it from the Sunland community, according to his council office.
