The construction crews base their work hours on the tides when working on the beach.#PCH Wave Breaker project underway to protect slopes along hey from erosion at Las Tunas State Bch in @CityMalibu pic.twitter.com/mYEms18Lmf— Caltrans District 7 (@CaltransDist7) December 17, 2015
While this project is underway, the beach/construction site is off limits to cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists. Trespassers could be cited by law enforcement officers.
All of this work has been permitted by the Los Angeles County Beaches and Harbors Department, California Coastal Commission, and the Army Corps of Engineers.
Remember, Be Work Zone Alert.
