Caltrans to Begin Parking Ban on PCH in March

After 20 years of wrangling with Hermosa Beach officials, the state Department of Transportation this week said it intends to finally institute an afternoon parking ban along the west side of busy Pacific Coast Highway in March.

The move, designed to stem an ever-increasing number of rush-hour collisions on PCH’s southbound lanes, will be reevaluated by Caltrans one year after it begins.

Caltrans hopes to begin the ban as early as March 1, though the date will depend on the availability and installation of parking signs. There has been a parking ban for the morning rush hour on the east side of PCH since the 1970s.
