Update on Bluff Cove Road Repairs


Palos Verdes Estates City Council has selected a “combination of caissons and tiebacks to create a wall that will support PF Drive West” reports the Palos Verdes Peninsula News. The road has been affected by the landslide above Bluff Cove. The caissons will be 53 feet deep; the tiebacks are horizontal wires used to reinforce the caissons for stability. The cost could be up to $1.2 million.

No start date is given for this project but it is projected to take 3 months to complete. I believe the city has to get funding from Los Angeles County for the majority of the funds. During construction they plan on keeping Palos Verdes Drive West open with one lane servicing traffic which means delays. Via Montemar has been suggested as an alternate road during that time.
