LB Begins Phase II of Bluff Stabilization Project

Long Beach — Long Beach announced Nov. 6 that it has begun work on the second phase of a project to stabilize the bluff along Ocean Boulevard.

Phase II of the Ocean Boulevard Erosion and Enhancement Project stretches from 20th Place to Paloma Avenue.

The bluffs will be stabilized with soil-nailing technology, which involves inserting about 2,500 30-foot-long steel anchor rods into the bluff. The sidewalk on top of the bluff will be repaired and new handrails, similar to the existing ones, will be installed.

The project includes native landscaping, including planter pockets and a new drip irrigation system that will mitigate future soil erosion.
A series of temporary protective screens will be utilized on top of the bluff, during times when work is occurring below on the bluff.

Work is expected to be completed in May 2014. The project’s budget of $4.4 million is funded by the Tidelands Operations Fund, with no impact on the general fund.

Phase I stabilized the area between Redondo Avenue and 36th Place and was completed in 2012.
