Effort to shore up hillsides impacting traffic on part of Pacific Coast Highway

Caltrans Map
Efforts to repair some eroded slopes along a section of the Pacific Coast Highway could result in delays for some motorists.

Motorists could hit delays during late night/early morning hours.

Motorists who use the Pacific Coast Highway to travel between Ventura and Los Angeles Counties during the overnight hours could find themselves hitting a snag during the next few weeks.

Traffic on the PCH will be reduced to one lane at times for a key construction project. Two retaining walls will be built as part of an effort to repair eroded hillside slopes south of Point Mugu State Park.

Because of the work, traffic will be reduced to one lane. Traffic will only be allowed one direction at a time from Deer Creek Road to Sycamore Canyon Road.

The work will take place from 9 p.m. Tuesday night until 5 a.m. Wednesday. Similar overnight closures will be in place for work Thursday night into Friday morning. There will be similar traffic delays when the work on the $51 million project continues January 18 and 20.
