Lanes on PCH Will Be Closed at Night through Summer 2029

There will be overnight moving land closures on both the north and southbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway between Sunset Boulevard and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Monday through Friday, starting May 6. All lanes will reopen each morning.

This project will repair or replace 12 drainage culverts along PCH from south of Temescal Canyon Road to the Venture County Line, according to Caltrans spokesperson Marc Bischoff.

On Monday, MAY 6 and Tuesday, MAY 7, one northbound lane will be closed from Sunset Boulevard to Topanga Canyon for “potholing,” which means confirming the location of utility lines. This will be a moving closure between the hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. starting at Sunset Boulevard.

On Wednesday, MAY 8 and Thursday, MAY 9, one southbound lane will be closed from Topanga Canyon Boulevard to Sunset for “potholing.”  This will be a moving closure, between the hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., starting at Topanga Canyon Boulevard.

Beginning Friday, MAY 10, work will shift to southbound lanes to install k-rail and for concrete work, blocking one lane each night – for up to four nights. Then the work will shift to the northbound lanes for four nights.

Work will include:

  • Removing debris or flush sediment inside the pipes.
  • Repairing joint seal of the pipes.
  • Re-lining culvert barrels.
  • Replacing damaged sections of pipe.
  • Replacing entire sections of culverts.
  • Replacing the culvert at Solstice Creek (near Corral Canyon Road) with a bridge under the highway. The proposed bridge replacing the existing culvert will allow steelhead trout to swim upstream.

The project will continue through the summer of 2029. The contractor on the project is Security Paving Company, Inc.
