Update from Donna Littlejohn of the Daily Breeze - Paseo del Mar section now closed to foot traffic and bicycles as well. There may be a community forum coordinated with the Oct. 17 Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting.
Doug Epperhart, who lives nearby and has been long active in both the nature preserve and the neighborhood council:
"Realistically, this (street) is not going to open any time soon, if ever." He suggested it could be viewed as an opportunity to create more open space. "Let's start thinking about what we can do without traffic running through there."

Via15th Council District: Until further notice, the City will close Paseo Del Mar from just west of the intersection of Weymouth and Paseo Del Mar to the entrance to the White Point Nature Preserve. Access to the Nature Preserve will remain open.
Department of Public Works is advising motorists and pedestrians in the "coastal neighborhood of San Pedro" of a sinkhole just north of the westbound traffic and bike lanes on Paseo Del Mar approximately 634 feet west of the intersection of Weymouth and Paseo Del Mar.
The City Bureaus of Engineering, Street Services, and Sanitation, the City Department of Transportation, and the County of Los Angeles are investigating to determine what is causing the sinkhole and what future actions will be taken.
