Document Title
Ramirez Canyon Slope Rehabilitation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This project will rehabilitate two failing slopes as well as two Corrugated Metal pipe (CMP) drainages along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) at Ramirez Canyon in the City of Malibu. The slope and CMP drainages began to fail after severe storms in 2005, and continue to erode, which will eventually lead to an undermining of the adjacent roadway. Unstable fill material will be excavated and recompacted via benching and will include the addition of geo-fabric. The CMP drainages will be replaced and extended beyond the current easement. Imported fill material will be used as well as the placement of rock slope protection around the outlet of the storm drains. This project will prevent possible failure of the adjacent PCH, maintain the current level of service and remove existing safety hazards.
