Jackson officials: Only road to homes in area of slow-moving landslide could reopen next week

Officials in Jackson say residents might soon regain use of the only road to their homes in the area of a slow-moving landslide.

Work crews have piled 400 tons of dirt and concrete blocks on Budge Drive to try to halt the landslide. The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1jMvWyx) the work has created a temporary one-lane road on top of the drive.

Jackson police Lt. Cole Nethercott says traffic could be allowed as soon as next week if ground movement continues to slow down and the road holds.

The shifting hillside caused officials to evacuate 42 homes and apartment units April 9. Last week, a surge in movement tore one house atop the slide zone in two.

Most residents have been allowed to return but only on foot.
