Daytime road closures are likely to cause traffic snarls
Necessary pavement repairs to Pacific Coast Highway will likely cause some traffic headaches for drivers in Santa Monica and Malibu. Caltrans plans on closing one lane on PCH on different days and times between April 18 and April 20. The locations differ daily between Santa Monica and Malibu.
Caltrans will leave one lane open to facilitate traffic passage. The following are the lane closures and dates:
Monday, April 18: The northbound/westbound right lane (#2 lane) and the Winter Canyon transition to northbound PCH north of Webb Way in Malibu
Tuesday, April 19: The northbound/westbound right lane (#2 lane) just before Zumirez Drive
Wednesday, April 20: The northbound/westbound right lane (#2 lane) west of La Herran Road in Malibu
Thursday, April 21: The southbound/eastbound right lane (#2 lane) just north of the McClure Tunnel in Santa Monica
Caltrans says, “The schedule is weather-permitting and subject to change. Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time, drive with care in work zones, and be alert for workers in and near the roadway.”
