In February of 2019 a rockslide on California SR-2, the Angeles Crest Highway, buried the road in 30 feet of rubble and closed the road indefinitely. Caltrans worked to clear the remaining landslide debris and reduce the hazards in the area. Part of the work involved using a spider excavator to excavate from the head of the landslide down. This is one of the best videos I’ve seen showing this unique piece of equipment in action. There is also a nice article about the project on The Drive.
A 50-ton boulder caused severe damage to a La Crosse, Wisconsin home after a rockslide event near the appropriately named Cliffwood Lane. Residents in some adjacent houses were asked to evacuate as well. Click through for the news coverage of the rockslide. [Source and Image: WXOW. Hat tip to USGS]
