This section of highway is located on top of an active landslide and has a history of pavement settlement. Last summer, the speed limit was reduced to 25 mph until crews could repair and eventually repave the area. They also installed additional overhead lighting to help motorists more clearly see the roadway.

Previously, WSDOT installed a culvert into the hillside to divert water away from the road. Despite efforts to reduce land movement, the slide continues to move and disrupt the highway surface. Patching and paving efforts, seen as only temporary repairs by WSDOT, will continue until funds for a permanent repair can be identified.
