New time-lapse video shows US 89 landslide repair progress



The one-minute, 22-second video above actually represents about three and a half months of work…

Blog-2014-1203-89 Click on photo for a larger view of the progress. In that time, crews on the US 89 landslide repair project have been busy blasting and moving dirt and rock material. By the end of the project, they’ll have moved about one million cubic yards!

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that the repair work includes moving the roadway alignment about 60 feet away from the landslide area and stabilizing the new road by constructing a downslope buttress. That buttress is being created with the material that’s being excavated from the landslide area (read more about the repairs in this previous post). ADOT anticipates completion of the US 89 repair and opening the new segment for travel by early summer, 2015.

Learn more about the US 89 landslide repair by visiting azdot.gov/US89. On that site, you’ll be able to read our previous posts, check out our photos and videos and get updates.

You’ll also want to check back with us tomorrow, here on the blog. We’ve got another time-lapse video that shows the US 89 landslide repair work from another angle!
