For those that don't get the local newspaper, well I guess that's just about all of you, the closure of Undi Rd. on the upper Bogachiel River looks like it's going to finally come to an end. Word is that Jefferson Co. is not going to perform any more road repair of the existing .8 mile landslide area. According to a recent article in the Peninsula Daily News a contract is about to be awarded for a by-pass road of the area. That's great news for the people that live beyond the slide and those that want to access the upper most portion of the river. Even the slightest amount of rain this summer has turned the upper river to mud. I walked into the area from the Dowan Creek Rd. side to inspect the progression of the slide area and found it still active even during summer months in this photo taken yesterday. This isn't going to fix the slide from silting up the river however. Looks like the first big shot of rain this fail is likely going to bring the rest of the hillside down into the river. Hopefully that will stabilize it somewhat and change the river course away from the landslide. Here's the link to the PDN article if you'd like to give it a read.
