MALIBU The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close

one lane of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) at the following times and

locations nightly from Sunday, June 15 through Friday, June 20:

· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., south of Chautauqua Boulevard to the McClure

Tunnel, grinding and crack sealing (spot locations).

The closures are related to a $7 million, 11.6-mile paving project from

Malibu Lagoon Bridge to the McClure Tunnel. Work consists of removing

existing concrete pavement and replacing it with Rubberized Asphalt

Concrete (RAC), including removing and replacing raised pavement markers,

traffic striping and markings; adjusting manhole cover heights; and

modifying loop detectors (speed sensors embedded in the roadway). The

project is expected to complete by early 2009.

Rubberized Asphalt Concrete overlay is more durable and longer-lasting than

conventional asphalt and thus requires less maintenance. RAC is not only

cost-effective but can also reduce noise and provide significant

environmental benefits in its use of old tires as a component. This RAC

project will preserve the roadway and provide a smoother, safer driving

surface for motorists.
