The work will take place on SW Holden St between Delridge Way SW and 20th Ave SW to clear a stairway. SDOT is hiring a contractor to use goats to remove vegetation beginning Tuesday, April 7 through Saturday, April 11 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The work is weather contingent and hopefully it won’t be too baaaad. The work may be completed sooner than scheduled; the goats will be ruminating but won’t be overthinking their work.
The area will be fenced off day and night April 2 to approximately April 15. Goats are better suited to steep hillsides than humans, so it’s safer and more cost-effective to have this work done by goats than by humans.
Update: The stairway will remain open while the goats are working. There won’t be any parking impacts associated with this project.
