WSDOT landslide Mitigation Work Resumes Along Northern Rail Lines Near Everett And Mukilteo
OLYMPIA – Crews will start landslide mitigation work near Mukilteo and Everett the week of Agust 17, 2015, to help limit landslides that disrupt passenger train service north of Seattle.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is spending $16.1 million in federal funds on slide management projects to help shore up slopes along rail lines. Six historically slide prone sites were selected for work. Two projects were completed in 2014. This summer and late fall work will take place at three sites near Mukilteo and one near Everett.
