As you can see, courtesy of the photographic eye of Michael Burroughs, ODOT is busy at work rebuilding the hillside that slumped out from under Highway 101 just north of the Newport Airport. In one shot you can see how the excavators have dug out the hard-bottom of the slide and have begun filling in its tow with big river rock. Spaces between the tightly packed boulders will be filled in with gravel and that will fortify the “set.” Then they’ll terrace in the dirt to complete the fix.
They are buuuuusy!
Thank you Michael!!!!
