Need alternate Driving Directions Going South from Visalia down to Los Angeles during Fires
Posted by: Microman

Wife is up in Visalia, at a meeting, and she is scheduled to return tomorrow Sunday. I-5 South is currently closed.

She could take the 41 to the 101 and take the coastal route down, but there is a fire in Santa Barbara also.

In Bakersfield she could take the 58 towards Barstow and then take the 395 down to come in like she is returning from Las Vegas.

Does anyone have any experience in the alternate routes to go south in California during fires then end up in Long Beach area.

Thanks.

I'd take the 58 to the 14 towards Palmdale/Lancaster, then cut through the Angeles Forest to re-connect to the major LA freeways South of the fires.

I was thinking that too, looks like I-5 is closed southbound around Santa Clarita, and 14 will connect to I-5 south of the closure.

The road conditions say that there is a detour available where I-5 is closed, not sure where that detour will take you or how backed up things are.

Yes, I can see by the Map of the fires and closures, that the 14 cant be taken all the way to the 5, So she could take the 58 to the 14 to the 138 which would connect with the 215 between Victor Ville and San Bernardino. Then I can have her avoid the 91 which is currently closed because of another fire.

Santa Barbara 101 is OK.

Fires in Brea, Yorba Linda, and Rancho Palos Verdes.

My daughter called from Disneyland wanted know what the smoke was. She saw it before reported.

600 Mobile Homes by the 5 & 14 gone. Plus 165 more houses in Sylmar.

The Sylmar fire is being controlled and check the above link in the morning. The 5 might be open then. The Corona/Yorba Linda fire is really raging. There will be questions about the lack of water in some areas and possibility of arson of foreclosed homes. I understand that the 126 to the 23 south at Fillmore is jammed. Make sure that tank is filled in Bakersfield. Good luck.

I think it might be arson from the Mongols.
