California Landslide Adds to Infrastructure Problems
A portion of the Pacific Coast Highway was hit by a landslide.
A landslide recently buried a quarter-mile section of the Pacific Coast Highway near California’s Big Sur, adding to a number of incidents that have destroyed portions of California infrastructure.
No injuries were reported as a result of the landslide, which was caused by unusually heavy rainfall since the start of the year in the area. Roughly 35 to 40 feet of highway has been covered by the pile of dirt and rocks.
The estimated cost to fix the highway is $55 million.
