San Dimas transition roads remain closed

February 24, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
There's bad news for commuters whose route takes them through San Dimas. Caltrans says the connector road from the westbound 10 Freeway to the northbound 71 will remain closed indefinitely due to a landslide.

A rain-soaked hillside gave way Thursday, sending a cascade of dirt and mud onto the roadway. It's been cleaned up, but officials say the area is still unsafe. Caltrans is trying to stabilize the slope so the transition road can be reopened.

There's no estimate when traffic will be allowed to use that transition again.
