Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) between Yerba Buena Road and Las Posas Road was closed after rain storms and debris slides covered the highway in December. Repair crews were able to clear the highway and re-open it for the public for a short time.
In January a heavy storm caused more rock and debris slides, and washed out slopes near Sycamore Cove Beach requiring that highway remain closed till the end of February instead of January. Six-miles of the 9-mile closure between Las Posas Road and Sycamore Cove Day Use Area were opened to the public on February 3.
Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists were restricted from entering the three-mile closure because the highway was undermined in three separate locations just south of the Sycamore Cove Day Use Area.
To repair the remaining sections highway, our contractor:
- Removed 40,000 yards of dirt or 4000 truck loads. Much of the dirt was reused to rebuild damaged sections along the highway. Point Mugu State Park used the dirt to repair trails and CSU Channel Islands will use the dirt for a future construction project.
- Cleared dozens of drains, thousands scuppers and weep holes, and rebuilt thousands of feet of shoulders and slopes.
- Used a 200-ton Link Belt crane to place 8,168 tons of rock to help rebuild the rock slope protection south of the Sycamore Cove Day Use Area along the highway.
Union Engineering of Ventura, California was awarded this $7 million emergency contract. The state will be reimbursed for the costs of this project under the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Fund.

In March, Caltrans will be hosting seven statewide workshops that will give the public an opportunity to discuss the State’s future transportation system and to provide input on the State’s long-range transportation plan — the California Transportation Plan 2040 (CTP 2040). Read more about it here.
To kick-off the extensive interactive effort with the public, the CTP Project Team will host a webinar this Thursday, March 5, 2015, from 2-3 p.m., and you're invited to participate. The webinar will provide an overview of the CTP 2040 and an open comment period.

Workshops will be held in Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, Fresno, Oakland, Sacramento and Redding. The workshop in Los Angeles is scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at SCAG, 818 West 7th Street, Los Angeles. More information is here.
These fun and interactive workshops will include maps and exhibits, a short overview presentation, and a variety of activities designed to share information about transportation concerns and help shape the direction of the CTP 2040 document.
The CTP envisions a fully integrated, multimodal, sustainable transportation system that supports economic vitality, protects natural resources, promotes the health and well-being of all Californians, and meets people’s needs equitably. By being involved and sharing your ideas, you can influence the content of the final plan and, ultimately, decisions on how California transportation dollars are invested.
