ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

UPDATE Thursday 5:25pm
Highland Park Way SW will remain closed today according to SDOT and is expected to reopen by late afternoon Friday for the PM commute.

SDOT crews have removed 90% of the material that came down from the hillside on to the roadway, about 2400 tons.

Crews will remove the remaining material tomorrow and will place approximately 50 concrete Ecology blocks (6’ long x 2’ wide x 2’ high) along the western edge of Highland Park Way SW to buttress the hillside.

UPDATE 2:00pm Wednesday
The mudslide that blocked three lanes on the hill on Highland Park Way SW remained a problem and will not be solved until possibly Friday. SDOT said via Twitter "Highland Park Way SW will remain closed through Thursday btw SW Holden St & W Marginal Way SW due to a landslide. Plz use alternate routes.
Power that was knocked out in the area was largely restored earlier with only a few left with no electricity on Wednesday afternoon.
