Update #1 – Pepperdine Monitoring SoCal Wildfire Activity and Road Closures

Posted on

Pepperdine officials are continuing to monitor wildfire activity in the area, including the Getty Fire. The 405 through the Sepulveda Pass is now closed in both directions, Topanga Canyon Boulevard is closed to all but local residents, and the eastbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway near Pacific Palisades are closed. Motorists using northbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway from the Westside to Pepperdine should expect significant delays. 

Smoke from this fire may be seen from multiple locations in the area including the Malibu campus. At this time, there is no impact to any of Pepperdine’s campuses. Campus operations are normal, and classes will be held as regularly scheduled.  

Please be advised of the following:

  • Community members whose homes are affected by the fire or road closures should follow the directions of their local governmental agencies. 
  • Road condition information is available on the University’s Road Condition hotline at 310.506.ROAD (7623).
