A landslide forced the closure of Vasquez Canyon Road after pavement uprooted 150 feet of road east of Bouquet Canyon Road.

Los Angeles County Public Works engineers and geologists are investigating the cause of the ground movement as soil continues to move and push the roadway into an upward slope more than six feet above the ground.

The problem was reported on Thursday at about noon.

Public works officials say Vasquez Canyon Road between Lost Creek Road and Vasquez Way will be closed until further notice.

Santa Clarita city officials are recommending Sierra Highway as an alternate route.
