New route will have to be charted for collapsed coastal road
A huge stretch of coastal bluff road that collapsed in a heavy rainstorm Sunday is likely irreparable and a new route for the scenic roadway will have to be charted, officials said Monday. Engineers and geologists on Monday were studying the site along Paseo del Mar in San Pedro, south of downtown Los Angeles, to determine how to stabilize the shifting ground, which has been slowly sliding into the ocean since earlier this year.
