Fire Closure Update: 241 Still Closed Severely Damaged

Until further notice, the 241 Toll Road will remain closed in both directions between the 91 Freeway and Santiago Canyon Road/Chapman Avenue.

As a result of the Canyon Fire 2, which broke out the morning of Monday, October 9, a section of the 241 Toll Road sustained electrical, signage, guardrail, traffic control device and fencing damage when flames got close to and crossed the roadway. The damage must be repaired and the roadway cleaned of fire retardant before it can be deemed safe to reopen to drivers.
AN EMERGENCY REPAIR CONTRACT has been awarded to assess the damage and make repairs. Work will begin immediately and continue around-the-clock to safely reopen the roadway as quickly as possible.

We appreciate your patience and understand that it is inconvenient to have even a portion of the 241 Toll Road closed for any amount of time.

Another email will be sent and our social media pages will be updated when we have more information about when the 241 Toll Road between the 91 Freeway and Santiago Canyon Road/Chapman Avenue will reopen. #91fire #241fwy #octraffic #eastvalenews
