Woodland, WA: Drone Footage of Mudslide on SR 503

Clearing the debris slide blocking SR 503, 20 miles east of Woodland isn’t as easy as just removing trees and rocks from the highway. A large crack shows where the rock face of the slope has separated from the hillside, making it unsafe below. Record rainfall along with freezing temperatures aided in the debris fall. As of Friday, March 17, the slope is still moving and unstable. We shot this video using a drone, so we can start developing a permanent repair plan.

Making the Grade: Energy

Making the Grade: Energy

In the ASCE 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, energy received a grade of D+. Most electric transmission and distribution lines were constructed in the 1950s and 1960s with a 50-year life expectancy, and the lower 48 states’ power grid is at full capacity. Without greater attention to aging equipment, as well as addressing storm and climate impacts, Americans will likely experience longer and more frequent power interruptions – already reportedly in excess of 3,500 per year. What can you do to help? Watch the video and visit https://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/.
