MALIBU—The city of Malibu announced on its website that a new traffic signal is being installed at Webb Way and Civic Center Way as part of several projects to improve traffic safety and mobility in the Civic Center region. Ongoing work crew and vehicle activity will take place around the Civic Center and might impact traffic flow.
There will be intermittent lane closures at the intersection with flaggers directing traffic November 5 through Friday, November 9 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Flaggers will provide traffic control when lane closures are required. Motorists are expected to proceed with caution through the work zones.
