Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1): Las Tunas State Beach Shoreline Protection Project in Malibu Nearing Completion

Caltrans began constructing a seawall (rock slope protection) on the oceanside slopes of Las Tunas Canyon Beach along eastbound Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) east of Big Rock Road on Wednesday, October 28.  Today, the project is now 87% complete.  The project is expected to finish in late May.
The 1,600 foot-long and 20 to 30 feet-tall sea wall is finished.  The seawall will protect slopes from erosion.  Without this project, the erosion would have undermined the highway.  

What’s left to do:
  • A paved parking lot will be built on the south-end of the project area.
  • Install natural beach access trails.
  • Remove steel plates from the work area.
  • Return highway shoulder to original configuration. 
Nearby residents may hear occasional noise from the project area.

Nordic Industries of Olivehurst, California was awarded this $8.2 million contract that is funded by the State Highway Operation and Protection Program.

Remember to Be Work Zone Alert.
