MALIBU—On Monday, March 25, the city of Malibu provided an update on its website related to several road closures because of landslides in the region.

The City Public Works Department is communicating with Caltrans on the closures due to landslides that have been impacting Malibu as Caltrans engineers continue to assess the safety and stability of the slopes and the roadway at the landslide sites in Topanga Canyon and on Pacific Coast Highway.

“We understand the inconvenience and frustration caused by the traffic congestion. The closures are for your safety. We will continue to post any significant changes on social media and other platforms. Meanwhile, we urge residents, commuters and visitors to check navigation apps and for the latest road conditions and closures or call Caltrans Highway Information Network at 800-427-7623 before hitting the road. For the most up to date information, follow Caltrans District 7 on X (Twitter) at Please drive cautiously in the slide areas, and watch for workers and work vehicles in the road,” the city stated on its website.


Topanga Canyon remains closed in both directions from Grand View Drive to PCH until further notice due to the large, active landslide located 1.8 miles north of PCH. Large rocks continue to fall at the site. Caltrans is continuing to monitor the slide. Additional rain is forecasted for the weekend.


As of March 22, Caltrans stationed flaggers to direct traffic from Tuna Canyon Road onto to southbound PCH in Malibu to help make it easier and safer for drivers to cross the northbound lanes of PCH and prevent wrong-way drivers from entering the one-way Tuna Canyon Rd.


Caltrans restriped the median lane on PCH at the ongoing active landslide just south of Big Rock Drive in Malibu to provide two northbound lanes to help alleviate traffic congestion. One northbound lane was taken up by K-rails to halt the active landslide. There are now two northbound and one southbound lanes open. Caltrans is assessing the slide and making plans to clear the roadway. The duration is unknown.
