Document Description
The Topanga Lagoon Restoration Project is a multiagency plan that seeks to restore ecological values of the coastal lagoon by expanding the existing footprint from its current condition of less than 1 acre to 7 -10-acres. The project would improve the ecological condition and hydrologic functions of the lagoon to more closely resemble a natural condition. As part of the Project, the existing Pacific Coast Highway bridge over Topanga Creek would be reconstructed with a longer span to accommodate a wider lagoon. The project would also improve coastal access and recreation in a way that supports and enhances biological and cultural values.
