County road crews clean up pair of recent landslides ...

Allamakee County Secondary Road crews were kept busy late Thursday and early Friday, May 2 and 3 with a pair of landslides that left some large rocks and other dirt and debris on County roadways. Pictured above is a large rock formation that slid off the hillside and rolled on to Columbus Road near the Driftless Area Visitor and Education Center south of Lansing Friday morning, May 3. Road crews were also called to another larger slide that covered both lanes of County Road X52 near Waukon Junction south of Harpers Ferry Thursday afternoon, May 2, closing that highway for a bit and leaving another large rock formation along the side of that road that was slated to be cleaned up early this week. Saturated soils from this spring’s unpredictable weather could lead to more such instances, with more rain forecasted, so drivers should be aware.
