Malibu Canyon Road Tunnel Work Completed, Closure Over

The ongoing nightly closure of the Malibu Canyon Road tunnel is officially over.

“The construction work inside the Malibu Canyon Road tunnel is finished and the overnight closure (from 9 p.m.) of the tunnel is over,” reads an alert from the City of Malibu sent to subscribers Thursday afternoon.

Construction on the tunnel began on Jan. 4 and was estimated to be finished by August 2015, meaning the completion of the project clocks in two months ahead of schedule.

The $3 million project included improvements to the tunnel’s interior lining and roadway repair meant to enhance comfort and vehicle safety. There are also reported water quality benefits with the construction of a vegetated swale, which filters pollutants from stormwater and helps replenish groundwater.
