Construction projects in Malibu will likely cause major delays on Pacific Coast Highway this week.

Crews installing a new traffic light have Caltrans permits to close westbound PCH — also called Route 1 North — from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.

Eastbound PCH — Route 1 South — is set to get the same treatment on Tuesday, according to a joint news release from Caltrans and the City of Malibu.

The work is being done just east of the Malibu Pier. When similar traffic controls were in effect in late March, 35 minute delays developed at times.

At other times, PCH traffic has been delayed by temporary traffic signals installed for a road widening project in Malibu’s commercial center.

The two-month widening project will snarl traffic through June 1, the city said.
