Construction on PCH - April 2014 through April 2015
The City of LA is installing a new sewer line and the project is anticipated to continue through April 2015. During this time the far-right southbound lane of PCH will be closed. The closure will begin at The Beach Club, just south of Chautauqua Boulevard and end at the Annenberg Community Beach House. Construction will not affect the main entrance to the Beach House. Visitors may encounter traffic as a result of the closure.
Signs will also be posted for bicyclist and pedestrian detours.

The Big Blue Bus stops at the intersection of Entrada Dr/Channel Rd and Pacific Coast Highway, about 1/4 mile north of the Beach House. Use the underground walking path to get across PCH to the beach, and then head south along the bike path toward the Beach House.
