For those that take Topanga Canyon exit off the 101 freeway to the beach–expect delays through June.
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin brush clearance on Topanga Canyon Boulevard (SR-27) on Thursday, April 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A flagging operation will be in place one mile north of Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1). Motorists and residents in the Topanga area should expect delays and consider an alternate route. Closures are subject to change.
“This is a necessary effort to enhance safety and reduce fire fuel levels along the highway,” said District 7 Deputy Director of Maintenance Dan Freeman. “Although this is routine work, we’ll need the support of motorists and residents to ensure their safety and the safety of our employees in the work zone.”
This brush clearance project is expected to finish by June.
Motorists are advised to Slow For the Cone Zone and Move Over.
As part of a Topanga Canyon Boulevard (TCB) Partners project, Caltrans will use mowers and other mechanical tools instead of herbicides to remove brush and other vegetation along the highway.
