Caltrans Scheduled Brush Clearance Along TCB beginning June 26


Caltrans Working Along Topanga Canyon Blvd., Requiring Periodic Lane Closures
Updated June 21, 2022, at 4:00 p.m.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to clear weeds and brush as a fire prevention measure on State Route 27 (Topanga Canyon Boulevard) from Cezanne Avenue to Entrado Drive in Topanga Canyon.

The roadside work is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 26th. To protect workers and the public, the work will require periodic lane closures with flaggers directing alternating traffic along portions of the roadway. The roadside work will continue in small sections from 9am to 3pm on Tuesday and Thursday, June 27 & 29, heading south to end point at Entrado Drive.  No work is scheduled for the July 4th holiday.  Separately, regular maintenance involving weed clearance on Hwy 27 is scheduled from 10am to 3pm Thursday, June 22nd, near post mile 1.5 north of PCH, with a lane closure and alternating traffic.  Topanga businesses can remain open.

Closing one lane at a time allows traffic to continue accessing Topanga Canyon Boulevard while workers use hand tools clearing weeds and brush from the edge of the roadway up to 10 feet inward. No herbicides, pesticides or fire retardants will be used. Most improvements will be done in small sections from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Flaggers will communicate with radios to avoid extensive traffic backups. Caltrans is conducting this work to reduce fire danger in Topanga Canyon.

Signs alerting residents about the work will be posted along Topanga Canyon Boulevard. Motorists can expect delays.

All work is subject to change due to weather or construction-related issues. Caltrans recognizes these closures inconvenience motorists and businesses. Caltrans is working with the Topanga Town Council to address concerns about traffic flow, noise, community events, holidays and Red Flag conditions, when work may be suspended. Caltrans' goal is to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.

Motorists are strongly advised to seek alternate routes to avoid delays. Real-time traffic information can be found at http://quickmap.dot.ca.gov/. Updates also are available on Twitter by following @CaltransDist7.

The fire prevention work is separate from the previously announced storm repairs to damaged slopes and drainage systems along SR-27 from south of Cezanne Avenue to north of State Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway). The project is temporarily on hold.

Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
