This project stabilized a chronically unstable slope adjacent to US 101 in the Purdy Canyon area located in Mason County. To stabilize the slope, WSDOT removed 76,000 cubic yards, or about 7,600 dump trucks, of dirt and material and reshaped the slope.
This project reduced slides and emergency closures of US 101 in the Purdy Canyon Vicinity.
