As if the fires and mudslides are not enough … Caltrans officials are worried about the eroding highway falling into the ocean between Malibu and Ventura County.

Last October … waves eroded away the beach across the street from the giant landmark sand dune … at Thornehill Broome State Beach.

Waves have chewed into the sand bench that has held the highway since 1926.

A 10-foot vertical scarp stretches directly beneath the fog line for about 100 feet.

Money from the gas tax hike … and other tax sources … has been shuffled by the California Transportation Commission for the repair project.

7-and-a-half million dollars will be needed to repair damaged slope and shoulder, place boulders to protect the slope, and repair any damaged utilities.
