TOPANGA — Sections of Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Pacific Coast Highway and Mulholland Drive will be closed overnight — or will have one-way traffic control — through early Saturday morning so crews can repair pavement and stabilize hillsides affected by past winter storms, Caltrans announced.

Topanga Canyon Boulevard was fully closed overnight between PCH and Grand View Drive between 11:30 Monday night and 5 a.m. Tuesday. It will be fully closed again from 11:30 p.m. Tuesday through 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Also, because of roadway striping, there was one-way traffic control along parts of Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Mulholland Drive and Grand View Drive from 8 p.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Tuesday. One-way traffic control will be in place again from 8 p.m. Tuesday through 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Roadway striping will result in one-way traffic control along parts of Topanga Canyon Boulevard between Mulholland Drive and PCH from 8 p.m. Wednesday through 6 a.m. Thursday, from 8 p.m. Thursday through 6 a.m. Friday, and from 8 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Saturday.

All work will be done weather permitting and is subject to change.

Motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes. The community of Topanga will remain open to motorists. Drivers can check traffic conditions before they leave by visiting the Caltrans Quickmap at quickmap.dot.ca.gov.

The work is part of two separate contracts to make repairs along Topanga Canyon Boulevard, including a $2.9 million SB 1-funded pavement project that extends from PCH to Mulholland Drive; and an $11 million slope stabilization project between PCH and Grand View Drive to repair eroded slope embankments along the highway after multiple debris slides caused full closures of the highway during winter storms.
