The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced plans to close an approximately 26-mile stretch of PCH, between the cities of Santa Monica and Malibu. This closure is planned in both directions of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH or State Route 1) this week as crews install new lane striping.

 

Caltrans Public Information Officer Eric Menjivar said to expect the closure to begin Monday, May 21 and last through Friday, May 25 from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

“This road improvement is a result of California SB1, The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, signed into law April 28, 2017. SB1 invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix our roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California. “

The following closures will be in place: one northbound and southbound lane of PCH, between McClure Tunnel in the City of Santa Monica and Decker Canyon Road (State Route 23) in the City of Malibu. CalTrans plans on leaving one lane open in each direction during lane striping.

 

The striping project is weather permitting.

The funds will be split equally between state and local investments.
