Golden Gardens slide covered in cloth

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 26th, 2008

We hiked down Golden Gardens Drive to the mudslide that took out a big chunk of the roadway back in December. You may remember, it also took a Suburu with it. Well, now the Suburu is gone and the entire slide area is covered in cloth to slow the erosion process.

It looks like cloth from a burlap sack. Work crews hammered and bent rebar around branches to secure the cloth in place.

Plastic covers the roadway in an attempt to limit the erosion underneath the asphalt, but as you can see here, a new chunk popped loose in recent days. City officials say they’ll begin repairing the roadway this spring.
