Traffic Being Restricted On Highway 154 Over San Marcos Pass Due To Brushfire

Posted on Monday, May 27, 2013 4:02pm


The CHP is restricting traffic on Highway 154 due to the brushfire burning in the Los Padres National Forest, in Santa Barbara County.

People are being evacuated from the Paradise Road area, and authorities are also trying to keep the two lane highway open for emergency vehicles headed to the fire. The shutdown is having a big impact on already what is one of the heaviest travel days of the year in the region, because it closes the most direct route from Santa Barbara, to the Santa Ynez Valley.
