The landslide occurred on April 2, 2017. The road has been closed since then and will be until further notice. Due to public safety and the location of the landslide, there will not be a temporary bypass or detour constructed at this time. The slide is not very active at this time but there is still some material sloughing off on occasion due to the nature of the slide and the type of soils that are out there.
Lincoln County has completed the right of way process. The civil design firm, HDR, Inc., with technical input from Budinger & Associates, Inc. has completed the repair plans & specifications for the bid documents. Construction funds have been authorized thru FHWA.
