Highway 64 Rock Slide Aerial Photos

Aerial photo of Highway 65 Landslide in Tennessee by Dennis Hutcheson

Some new aerial photos of the landslide or rock slide that blocked Highway 64 in Tennessee were posted last week by WTVC Channel 9. This was the landslide caught on video that I posted about previously.

TDOT officials have awarded a $2.1M emergency contract for removal of roughly 30,000 cubic yards of material and rock bolting to help stabilize what’s still hanging on the slope. They expect the work to take about 8 weeks. (Photo by Dennis Hutcheson from WTVC Website)

[Updated 11/29/09] Whoops, it’s Highway 64, not 65. I got it right in the original post, but not here. Corrected now. Thanks Don. [/Updated]
