Despite the closure of a portion of a major entry point to Laguna Beach due to a rockslide, police say traffic has not posed a significant problem Friday.

“It’s fine, we haven’t seen any issues at all,” Laguna Beach police Sgt. Jim Cota said. “People are getting turned around, but it’s not too crazy.”

Until 2 p.m., motorists are being directed to detour around Laguna Canyon Road as workers have closed it at Woodland and Canyon Acres drives to do emergency rock-scaling work.

Thursday morning, a landslide blocked the westbound lanes of Laguna Canyon Road west of Canyon Acres. Workers on Friday were removing an unstable boulder on the hillside, Cota said.
