Source reader Julie Evert wants to know: "When is the Crown Mountain landslide going to be removed?"
The answer, happily, is now.
The landslide, a "huge road hazard," according to Evert, occurred during the September rains.
The Source spoke to Public Works Commissioner Darryl Smalls, who said Friday, "Crews are out today removing the debris in the roadway." He said DPW has been working closely with the Department of Planning and Natural Resources to clear the roadway.
"There are a lot of boulders in the mudslide," Smalls said. "What we will do is reuse the boulders to help stabilize the hillside. Before the end of this weekend, the hazard should be removed from the roadway."
