Probably.  They usually close the gates because of campers and the heavy traffic flow up there.

Tried to go up there earlier this morning (Around 10 AM).  I was going to scout the condition of the road but was stopped by the fire department shortly as I started ascending.  He told me the road was closed for the entire day.   Tried to swing around from the azusa side to east fork but the gate was closed (even though signs said it was open).  It might be closed all weekend since it seems they close it during the labor day weekend each year from what I've heard.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong or you can try going up to see if it's true lol.

probably to prevent fires. They have done that from time to time, also if there have been a lot of tossers lately they may just be trying to curb squidly behavior for that weekend. Will be interesting to see how long its closed for..

Crap!  Looks like the fire that they were trying to prevent has already started.  Now Hwy 39 will be closed as well.
