UPDATE 6/4: Topanga Canyon Landslide at Postmile 1.8 on SR-27

State Route 27 reopened Sunday, June 2, months ahead of schedule.

Continuing emergency repairs will require one-lane closure with flaggers directing alternating traffic during off-peak hours at postmile 1.8 on SR-27. Caltrans will notify the community when the work is scheduled. Motorists can also check Quickmap.dot.ca.gov for real-time road conditions.

The temporary signal light at Tuna Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Highway (Route 1) is no longer needed and will be removed beginning about 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 5. It will require closing one lane in both directions of PCH for lane striping. Work is expected to be completed before morning commute time.

Caltrans is updating its webpage with the project overview on the Caltrans District 7 site. It should be completed soon. It will be available at: https://dot.ca.gov/caltrans-near-me/district-7

TOPANGA TOWN COUNCIL NOTE:

The Town Council is following up with Caltrans and other entities regarding the next steps Caltrans will be taking to permanently secure the hillside.  Also, discussions are taking place on how to minimize the impact of any additional road projects—like repaving the boulevard and installing broadband cable.

If you have any questions for Caltrans, please send them to Topanga@dot.ca.gov.

Be sure to come to the next Town Council online meeting on Thursday, June 20th at 6pm.  Email the council if you are not already receiving the monthly newsletters so you can get the Zoom meeting link and additional meeting information.  E: contact@topangatowncouncil.org
