JACKSON, Wyo. — A nearly constant stream of rocks and gravel sliding down a hillside in the resort town of Jackson has forced crews to stop working on an emergency buttress to stop a slow-moving landslide.
Authorities said Thursday cracks appeared to be growing, but officials do not expect a catastrophe.
About two dozen police and work crews backed away from a cliff Thursday as debris streamed into a parking lot where they were working. No injuries were reported.
Crews used backhoes and excavators on Wednesday to build concrete barriers as high as 10 feet along a road.
The slow-moving landslide has displaced residents of four homes and two small apartment buildings and cut off road access to dozens of other homes.
