The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will have alternating closures in both directions of Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1) intermittently between 6:30 am and 4:30 pm on Thursday, Nov. 21 from south of Las Posas Road to north of Deer Creek Road.

The closures are necessary to enable installation of rock drapery, or netting, from a helicopter on the hillside overlooking the highway to prevent falling rocks.

The California Highway Patrol will be on site, and flaggers will direct traffic.

Changeable message signs will be posted in advance of the closure area to advise motorists regarding delays. Alternate routes are recommended, if possible.
