Project Overview

A portion of Deer Trail experienced structural failure and severe erosion from an extreme wet weather event that happened in late 2020 and early 2021. The slide location was approximately 400 feet north of the intersection of Deer Trail and Birch Bay Drive. 

As of October 2022, the majority of construction is now complete. Landscape restoration work is anticipated to occur in October, but resulting traffic impacts will be minimal.
