LA County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich and Supervisor-elect Kathryn Barger will celebrate the re-opening of Vasquez Canyon Road nearly one year after it was closed by a landslide.

Worldwide attention followed the Nov. 19, 2015, landslide that destroyed a 400-foot section of Vasquez Canyon Road. A shift in the adjacent hillside caused the sudden and visually spectacular deformation of the roadway.

The same natural forces that, within a matter of hours, turned Vasquez Canyon Road into an undulating strip of broken pavement has also hastened the County’s rebuilding of the road.
