Work underway on Trancas Creek Bridge Replacement Project at Trancas Canyon Rd. and PCH - Watch for Workers & Vehicles
Caltrans has started work on the replacement of Trancas Creek Bridge on PCH east of Trancas Canyon Road in Malibu. The preliminary work involves fiber optic line relocation work by a contractor for Frontier Communications, requiring clearing vegetation from the shoulders, hauling away material, and periodic service outages, with work expected to be completed by the end of March.
Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists should proceed with caution and watch for construction workers, vehicles and equipment in the road and shoulder.
The project will require intermittent lane closures (one lane in each direction) from Guernsey Avenue to Trancas Canyon Road starting the week of March 21, Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for removal of the concrete median island. Night work will also be performed 7:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Sunday through Wednesday.
Caltrans has placed “No Parking” signs between Guernsey Avenue and Trancas Canyon Road, in effect for the duration of the project.
Construction work on Trancas Creek Bridge Replacement is scheduled to begin on May 2. One lane of PCH will be closed in each direction Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Caltrans is proposing to replace the existing 96-year old, 85-foot wide, 90-foot long concrete bridge, which was constructed in 1927 to span Trancas Creek on PCH in Malibu, with a new concrete bridge, which will be 105 feet wide by 240 feet long. The new bridge will provide two 12-foot traffic lanes, bike lanes, separate pedestrian lanes and 10-foot shoulders in each direction. Northbound and southbound traffic will be separated by a six-foot striped median. Completion is scheduled for summer of 2024.
