Work to stabilize a failed slope along Highway 101 northwest of Brookings is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
"The slope at milepoint 332 failed this spring because of heavy rain that saturated the ground," ODOT Public Information Representative Dan Latham said. "The repair involves placing stone embankment, reestablishing the stream channel below the slide and extending the culvert downslope."
Latham said construction began in August and is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 30. Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures until construction is complete. Flaggers will provide traffic control as needed.
Tidewater is the contractor for the $1.2 million project to repair the slide.
