NEW TEMPORARY TRAFFIC SIGNAL AT PCH & GUERNSEY
As part of the Caltrans Trancas Bridge Replacement Project, a temporary traffic signal will be installed at Guernsey Avenue and PCH, with a pedestrian crosswalk across PCH. It is expected to be functioning in mid-April.
Updates on this project will be posted on the City’s social media, via traffic alerts, and on the website. Sign up for City traffic alerts on the website (scroll to Alert Center). Questions or complaints can be sent to Caltrans at TrancasBridgeProject@dot.ca.gov.
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.
