A slow-moving landslide in Jackson has started accelerating, blocking off the area's only access road and undermining options for stabilization.
Crews stopped work Thursday on an emergency buttress designed to slow down the slide. Officials decided it was no longer safe to work beneath a cut slope that kept releasing gravel slides, and pulled workers off the job. The only access road to the hillside has become impassable.
The Town has hired landslide expert George Machan, who gave an update today.
