The Pacific Coast Highway was closed to northbound traffic in Pacific Palisades on Thursday morning because of a landslide, according to traffic reports.

The northbound lanes between Sunset Boulevard and Temescal Canyon Road were closed after 4 a.m., forcing commuters to take alternative routes.


Los Angeles police responded to the scene as bulldozers worked to shove the mounds of dirt and rock off the road. Officials could not immediately say when the coastal road would be reopened.
