TCB Road Closure Update

Heavy rains brought dangerous rock falls and mudslides to Topanga Canyon Boulevard, on Thursday, January 17, and again, overnight into January 21, closing the area between Pacific Coast Highway and Grandview Avenue.

While Caltrans crews were clearing up the rock falls, a boulder came loose and fell on a Caltrans trailer. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

According to Michael Dipsia, senior construction engineer for Caltrans, District 7, once this emergency work is finished the sites will have to be assessed by a Caltrans geologist for stability. Until then, the road will remain closed. Once the road is opened expect some scheduled weekend closures to install 3,500 linear feet of steel netting on the threatened hillsides and other mitigation and cleanup should the rains continue.
