Seattle Department of Transportation crews are taking advantage of the unusually good weather today to remove slide debris from the 6000 block of Beach Drive Southwest and temporarily place an ecology block catchment wall in the parking lane.
The crews plan to work at the site today and again on Wednesday, weather permitting, with the goal of reopening two lanes–one lane in each direction. A flagger will assist traffic while the crews are working.
There was a slide in the 6000 block of Beach Drive SW on January 12 and additional sliding occurred a few days later. The City of Seattle is working with property owners on a long-term solution to stabilize the slope.
