Closures set during fire-related repairs on LA-area highway

CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — Officials say parts of U.S. Highway 101 in Southern California will be closed during overnight hours for repairs made necessary during last month’s destructive wildfire.

The state Department of Transportation says Monday that periodic closures will take place from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Saturday in the Calabasas and Agoura Hills areas.

Motorists should expect delays as lanes, shoulders and on- and off-ramps are shut down.

Crews will install K-rail, repair damaged guardrails and apply erosion control in affected areas northwest of Los Angeles.

The Woolsey fire destroyed 1,500 structures in Los Angeles and Ventura counties and left three people dead.
