10 May TCB Closure Update #12
Overnight Full Closures of Topanga Canyon Blvd (SR-27) for Slope Repair
Motorists will be detoured to Malibu Canyon Road and Las Virgenes Road
TOPANGA – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced full closures of Topanga Canyon Blvd. (State Route 27) between Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1) and Grand View Dr. in Topanga for an emergency project to repair and restore eroded slope embankments along the highway. This year, the hillsides along Topanga Canyon Blvd. had multiple rock and debris slides onto the highway, triggering full closures of the highway for days.
From Monday, May 13 to Thursday, May 16 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., the following closure will be in place:
Topanga Canyon Blvd. between Pacific Coast Highway and Grand View Dr.
All work is weather permitting and subject to change.
Signs will be advising motorists to use US-101, Las Virgenes Road, and Malibu Canyon Road as an alternate route. Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes or avoid the area. The town of Topanga will remain open to motorists.

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