San Pedro landslide: Work begins on stabilizing site
SAN PEDRO, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Work is set to begin Monday at the site of the Paseo del Mar landslide in San Pedro.
Engineers are slated to start drilling as part of stabilizing measures, according to the Daily Breeze. The work is designed to dry out and stabilize the land that stretches from the cliffs into the White Point Nature Preserve.
The coastal road collapsed last November due to what was a powerful combination of water and gravity, according to a city study. Geologists say the ground began to shift as early as January 2010 following a smaller landslide on the east side of the road in 2009.
Officials want underground anchors, braces and drains in place before the next rainy season begins.
