In an effort to stabilize the slopes after L.A.'s wet winter, the California Department of Transportation is closing a stretch of Topanga Canyon Boulavard for repairs this weekend, according to the LA Times. The closures will go from 6 AM to 6 PM both Saturday and Sunday and covers the road from Pacific Coast Highway to Grand View Drive.

The crews are expected to drill into the rocks and place bolts in the slopes, according to CBS. The crews are also planning to work on the metal guard rails along Topanga Canyon Boulevard, which will involve closing the shoulder and possibly one lane of traffic as well.

Topanga Canyon Boulevard was last closed in January for landslide repair, when rocks fell from the slopes and blocked off the road.
