Project Rendering | Laguna Canyon Channel Replacement Project

The Laguna Canyon Channel Replacement Project construction is anticipated to start as early as September 6, 2022 and continue through May 2023. Construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Construction will involve the use of large equipment to remove and replace the channel and reconfigure the pedestrian crossings or bridges that cross over the channel, replace landscaping and hardscaping (in coordination with the City of Laguna Beach), and remove trees that may pose a risk to the channel.

Approximately two-thirds of the parking spaces along Laguna Canyon Frontage Road will be open for adjacent businesses during each phase of construction, while a portion of parking spaces will be temporarily closed to accommodate this work and equipment.

The sidewalk along Laguna Canyon Road near the project area will be closed during construction, a temporary pedestrian walkway with protective barrier will be available. To accommodate the temporary pedestrian walkway, the parking along Laguna Canyon Road adjacent to the sidewalk within the construction area will be closed for the duration of construction.

Background

Laguna Canyon Channel Replacement Project | 2019 Storm Channel Wall Failure

During heavy storms in February 2019, approximately 265 feet of the channel wall closest to Laguna Canyon Road collapsed. An investigation determined that an emergency repair was needed to maintain flood protection to the community. In March 2019, a temporary repair was implemented to fix the collapsed wall and bracing was added to prevent additional failures. The project will replace the temporary repairs with a permanent solution for the channel.

 

Project Scope

The Laguna Canyon Channel Replacement Project, between Laguna Canyon Frontage Road and Woodland Drive, consists of removing and replacing the rectangular concrete channel, reconfiguring small concrete pedestrian crossings, removing and replacing softscape and hardscape that may be damaged or removed in order to construct the Project, and removing trees within the Project limits that pose a risk to the channel.
