Rugg Road Landslide Repairs

In early 2021, heavy rains and strong winds toppled trees, causing the slope to collapse next to Rugg Road near the Hideaway Court intersection in the Boring area. A retaining wall will be built at this location.

Temporary protective sheeting and plant seeding are in place until permanent repairs are constructed.


Project design complete.
