Road and Driveway and Lincoln County Public Works crews were making short order of a large slide that covered the Bay Road just west of Toledo. The slide came down with mud, rock and trees early Friday. It appeared workers would have most of the road cleared by the end of Saturday with some finishing touches on Sunday.
The slide came from way up the hillside, near another slide that came down some years ago. Very steep slopes overlook that section of the Bay Road. Torrential rains in January and March have so saturated the soils that a section of the hillside has turned into a river of mud and debris.
