Pacific Coast Highway will be closed intermittently Wednesday and Thursday west of Malibu so crews can install netting to help prevent rocks from sliding onto the roadway.

The closures will occur at various times between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. each day from the area of Las Posas Road to La Jolla Canyon in Point Mugu State Park, Caltrans reported. Motorists and cyclists should expect delays of up to 30 minutes. Signs will be posted.

A helicopter will assist crews installing the rock netting, which is needed because of steep slopes along the highway, Caltrans said. The netting will help prevent rocks from falling onto the highway. The natural erosion in the area was made worse by the Springs Fire in May 2013.
