Tuna Canyon Slope Repairs Through September 23

A week before Tuna Canyon was closed for slope repairs on June 23, and Topanga Canyon Boulevard was being prepared for closure this weekend, L.A. Sheriffs were seen advising local homeless people living in the hills and transient cars and motor homes to move out of both areas. This Topanga Beach encampment wasn’t in the way of the construction project, but it did raise fire and sanitation concerns for the park. The people living at this site and those Tuna Canyon, were given written notice of eviction by Sheriff’s deputies. The notices were also posted at the sites. Photo by Suzanne Guldimann

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) continues a slope restoration project west of Tuna Canyon Road in the city of Malibu to repair an eroded slope above Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1). There will be no closures of PCH for this project, but motorists can expect delays.

From July 23 through September 23, the one-way portion of Tuna Canyon Road will be temporarily made two-way via a traffic control flagging operation to accommodate heavy-duty equipment only to enter the work site. Tuna Canyon Road will remain restricted to one-way traffic for motorists who can expect five- to seven-minute delays. Motorists travelling on PCH may experience brief delays as well.

Work will be performed during regular weekday working hours, 7 a.m.–7 p.m. All work is weather permitting and subject to change. Procon Builders Inc. of Chatsworth, Calif. is the contractor.

Caltrans reminds drivers to be “Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
