PCH Lanes to Close for Sewer Project

One southbound lane during the day and two at night will close from Tuesday through Saturday.

PCH Lanes to Close for Sewer Project

The City of Los Angeles says it will close southbound lanes on Pacific Coast Highway from Temescal Canyon Road to Entrada Drive from Tuesday to Saturday. The closures are due to the $10 million Coastal Interceptor Relief Sewer project.

According to an e-mail from the city, one southbound lane of PCH will be closed from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and both southbound lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

It is noteworthy that an announcement was made earlier this year that PCH lanes would be closed because of this project, but the closures did not occur.

This project involves the installation of a 4,500-foot pipeline to run alongside the existing Coastal Interceptor Sewer.

"It will provide increased flow capacity from the eight newly completed Santa Monica Bay low-flow diversions to the Hyperion Treatment Plant," a City of Los Angeles press release stated. "These infrastructure developments will keep urban runoff from flowing out into the ocean during year-round dry weather, helping the City of Los Angeles comply with water-quality regulations."

Construction is expected to take place through 2012. Additional road closures are expected.
