The West Broadway Landslide in Jackson continues to move.

The West Broadway Landslide in Jackson continues to move. Since it was initially found in 2014, the slide has moved on average at 1/4 inch per month. But, due to recent snow and rain, monitors have detected an increase in surface movement. As a result, town officials said there is the possibility of rock fall. Although the danger is low, drivers and pedestrian using Budge Drive are advised to use caution in the area. People are asked not to park or stop on Budge Drive below the slide area or on the Walgreens property.
“With the increase in movement we are monitoring the slide movement every 15 minutes,” said Town Manager Bob McLaurin. “Public safety is our primary concern and we want to make sure we make important information available. The town will host an open house Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Town Hall at 150 W. Pearl Avenue. Jackson officials will continue to consult with landslide experts, monitor the situation, and advise of any areas of concern.
