Document Description
The Proposed Project involves the expansion of the Topanga Creek and lagoon ecosystem, replacement of the existing PCH bridge (SR-1 #53-0035) with a longer bridge to accommodate the lagoon expansion, development of visitor services in lower Topanga State Park, and relocation of DBH facilities on Topanga Beach that are threatened by sea level rise. The Proposed Project includes construction of new visitor services at the northwest corner of the intersection of PCH and TCB, referred to as the “Gateway Corner.” The Proposed Project also evaluates beneficial reuse options for excavated sediment and options for on- and off-site wastewater disposal.
