The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will remove a portion of the southern-most land slide in the 6000 block of Beach Drive. An SDOT Urban Forestry crew will cut down trees on the hillside in the same general vicinity to protect the right-of-way and Beach Drive. During the work, for safety purposes, SDOT will close Beach Drive from 9 a.m. until the work is completed, which should be approximately 4 p.m. While the road is closed, a detour around the slide area will be provided from Atlas Place SW to 49th Avenue SW to SW Canada Drive. Residents will be allowed limited access.
The city will continue to evaluate the condition of the slide area daily.
