New Observation Deck Being Built Along PCH
Posted by Melissa Simon on Aug 7, 2013 - 2:38:29 PM

PACIFIC PALISADES—An observation deck is being built along the coast of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) as part of the Will Rogers Coastline Capital Project.

Linda Kaye, president of Sun Mesa Property Owners Association (SMPOA), told Canyon News the project has been in the works for a number of years since the idea was first brought up around 1996 or 1997.

“I first became aware of the project in 2003 and 2004 when I served on the SMPOA board,” she said. “We saw an artist rendering of it, but it has changed twice because there were two Coastal Commission reviews and revisions required.”

Kaye said some of the features of the deck will include parking, looking out at the ocean and actually being able to walk down to the beach from the deck, but it is not a pier.

“A pier would jut out and go over the water, this does not,” she said. “It stays along the cliff.”

The observation deck will be wheelchair accessible and have metered parking only, with no fee to enter. It will be located just past the coastline at the PCH intersection and will be on the beachside, or the southbound side of PCH.

“Southbound PCH traffic will be able to enter only,” Kaye said. “You won’t be able to turn around, there’s no U-turn on PCH coastline. You would have to go down to Coastline or Topanga and turn to actually access it if you are going north.”

The estimated completion date of the project is set for October 2014.
