Vegetation management along a segment of SR 27 in Topanga Canyon has been recognized for excellence as a result of its roundtable approach to resolving concerns related to pesticide use along the highway.

QuoteThe Topanga Canyon Boulevard Roadside Committee (TCBRC) has won a statewide 2015 Caltrans Excellence in Transportation Award in the category of Maintenance–Operations or Equipment. ...

In 2012, Caltrans Maintenance was found using herbicides along SR-27 in contrast to its previous practice of manual-only clearing. Topanga residents discovered the practice and protested to Caltrans and elected officials.

At the request of Maintenance's Deputy Director, a roundtable was formed in 2013 to find alternative methods for vegetation management that could be implemented in a public/private partnership with Caltrans, community groups, other agencies and elected officials.

Thus, the ad-hoc Topanga Canyon Boulevard Roadside Committee was formed to address the issue.

According to the Caltrans awards committee, the resulting Topanga Canyon Boulevard (SR-27) Vegetation Management Plan exemplifies Caltrans' core values of integrity, commitment, teamwork and innovation.

Should open Sunday. I'm happy as well. Though I don't depend on it, it is one my Sunday routes on rotation I'll cruise through to get to Mulholland highway.
