Laguna Canyon Channel Replacement Project


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, reinforced concrete box pedestrian crossings, softscape and hardscape that may be damaged and/or removed in order to construct the project, and removal of trees adjacent to the project limits that pose a risk to the channel.
