Does anyone know how long Highway 154 will be closed to the public? Officials stated it's closed "indefinitely" but what exactly does that mean, what's the time frame?

When it's safe for the public to drive on. However, considering 154 is the fiery monster route from hell, consuming and devouring a legion of victims through the decades one hopes it will never open.

Now is a good time to close 154 (at least on "our" side), until the casino installs 3 kiosks along the 154 route, 1 at each end & 1 at the summit..officered by sheriff explorers & 1 full-timer with radar & chase units.

Fernaldpoint, if that business was a concern for you, you would visit it not matter what the distance/ time needed. otherwise that was a poor attempt at a " woow is me" post

We love going to Cold Springs Tavern, and have been going there for years (at least 15). Love the harmonica guy who plays with the guitarist....those guys are pretty good. I made the mistake of waiting in the tri-tip sandwich line for about 15 minutes, and when it was my turn to order, the guy tells me that I have to go back to the bar to buy a sandwich ticket....talk about the walk of shame (got razzed by a bunch of peeps who knew the rules!). Nothing like Cold Springs on a hot summer Saturday afternoon.

@ Fernaldpoint93108 Local traffic has access. Sounds like they should be offering some specials to neighbors to get people in there.

I for one am glad it is closed this holiday weekend! I even gave thanks to mother nature for saving the lives of some people whose GPS forced them on a Highway they should never be on! All those Locals enjoying the drive suck it up because it will be rushed to open soon. Mahalo

I've always thought that adding a highway from Santa Clarita to Santa Maria would help. But that is just a pipe dream and I know it would never happen.

No rush. It’s lke a dream. It’s so great to drive on that road with no other traffic. I wish it was always local traffic only. It would save lives for sure.

Good news is now this route will be taken off GPS recommendations for the "shortest route". Maybe they can train enough people to avoid it.

Many hwy signs have been damaged (or the posts burned under them), and some stanchions and guard rails damaged by the fire. Estimate of 1 1/2 million in repairs. With this wet weather, a good time to shut it down and assess how to make it safer.

Indefinitely means, at some undetermined time in the future when all the factors are known/resolved. This does not lend itself to the establishment of a time frame which has the potential to mislead with an ultimately false promise.

what? natural disasters, fires, in a mountainous area are "not anticipated". wake up folks. they are ALWAYS a possibility, and ALWAYS have different routes. people act like there is only 1 way to get to solvang

If you chose to live in Buellton or Solvang and work in Santa Barbara the burden is the one that you put on yourself when you made that decision. Anticipating that nothing bad would ever happen to close a 2 lane tree lined mountain road in an area that has a Fire season? Hummm. Seems legit?

When the Cave Fire is 100% contained and there is little likelihood of the public getting in the way or interfering with mop up operations is when you can expect the road to be opened.

That means there is no time frame. They probably haven't had time to assess the situation yet. Have to get the fire out completely and inspect the damage, get the firefighting equipment out, etc. Sit tight.
