See LIVE 24/7 Traffic Cameras of Caltrans Culvert Replacement Project on Coast Highway at Main Beach
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will replace the box culvert under Coast Highway at Main Beach from April 1 until May 24
Expect Significant Traffic Impacts Through May
Through the duration of the Caltrans Culvert Replacement Project, traffic will be reduced to two lanes (one lane in each direction) between Ocean and Broadway on Coast Highway from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. 7 days/week.
Full road closures may happen overnight periodically throughout the project, and detours will be in place. Upcoming overnight full road closures are currently scheduled for April 8 and 10 from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.
During the full closures, there will be a detour in place utilizing Ocean Avenue, Beach Street, and Broadway. Signs will help guide drivers through the detour route.
- The construction contractor will be working double shifts beginning at 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. as needed to meet a goal of being finished and fully open to traffic by Memorial Day
- Downtown traffic control will be provided 7 days a week to help mitigate traffic impacts due to the long-term lane closures needed to complete the work safely and quickly
For questions regarding the project, please contact Caltrans Public Information Officer Darcy Birden at (949) 923-7136 or email@example.com

Police Department Begins New Loud Exhaust Enforcement Program
Last year, officers issued over 2,000 citations for loud vehicle noise violations and contacted hundreds more as part of the ongoing education and enforcement program.
The Laguna Beach Police Department has begun a special enforcement program targeting modified engines and loud exhaust vehicles in the City. Officers will be on patrol and on the lookout for these vehicles on both major roadways and in neighborhoods.
The Police Department will run the program through the summer and tailor their enforcement efforts to locations and times most impacted by the violations.
