Angeles Crest Highway Closed At Islip Saddle, 7/24/2015

I went up Angeles Crest Highway this past Friday and was surprised to find it closed At Islip Saddle.  I was headed to Little Jimmy anyway, so no loss, but I was surprised to find it closed this time of year.

Was there a wash out or slide during the weekend prior's rainstorms?

From the Cal Trans website:

SR 2  
   [IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AREA]
   IS CLOSED FROM ISLIP SADDLE TO 5 MI WEST OF BIG PINES HWY (LOS ANGELES CO)  
- DUE TO MUD SLIDES - MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE

Dunno when the slides occurred...

July 29th 2015 radio news report that the 2 was re-opened today, much earlier than expected. Dunno if true.
