Caltrans Working to Reopen Two Northbound Lanes

K-rail will be put around the toe of the slide, which will remain in place after the shifting of the lanes.

There will be overnight closures on Pacific Coast Highway, starting on May 28 and continuing through May 30. Closures could start as early as 7 p.m. each night, and remaining closed through 6 a.m.

During construction, at least one lane will remain open in each direction of PCH between Sunset Boulevard and Coastline Drive. Lane closures are subject to change due to weather or materials

In February, the historic and active Tramonto landslide took away a northbound land of PCH between Sunset Boulevard and Porto Marina Way.

In the past, Caltrans has cleared the landslide material, but this time because of slope instability, the agency told the City the land had to be remediated at the top of the slide. Until that is done, the existing northbound right lane must remain closed due to the slide and the sloughing.

To create two northbound lanes, Caltrans is realigning north and southbound lanes towards the shoreline. By Friday morning, May 31, PCH will be realigned to have two lanes open in each direction at Porto Marina Way near the Tramonto Slide.

Construction will include removing the existing curb along the southbound shoulder; removing existing pavement delineation, markers, and markings; realigning lanes around the slide area; grinding; repaving; restriping; and placing k-rail at the toe of the slide.
