Chautauqua Boulevard will be repaved from Sunset Boulevard to Pacific Coast Highway on May 4 from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and May 5 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“For a while now, the most requested street for resurfacing in Pacific Palisades has been Chautauqua,” Councilmember Mike Bonin said in a statement. “I promised that once the construction from the Palisades Village project was completed, we would get it done.”
