Officials Mull Options For Stabilizing Jackson Hillside

Apr 14, 2014

Officials in Jackson are exploring alternatives for access and possible emergency stabilization efforts for an unstable hillside that continues to shift.

Incident spokeswoman Charlotte Reynolds said the city will lay out plans at a news conference today.
 
About 60 people have been forced from their homes since Wednesday as a precaution and because of damage to the only access road.
 
The unstable hillside is about the size of two football fields and is along a main artery outside the historic downtown area.
 
Displaced residents have been staying in motels and with friends.
