SR 410 - Nile Valley Landslide - Reconstruct Route - Complete August 2012

Project Status - Complete

The SR 410 detour  provides a route around the Nile Valley Landslide.

WSDOT, 14th district legislators Yakima County and the FHWA cut the ribbon to open the new stretch of SR 410 at the base of the 2009 landslide in the Nile Valley, west of Naches, WA.

On Oct. 11, 2009, a massive landslide uplifted and destroyed a quarter mile of State Route 410 and changed the landscape of the Nile Valley forever.  

For three years, drivers traveled along the 35 mph detour through the Nile Valley community.

By August 2012, WSDOT and crews constructed a permanent, 55 mph route along the toe of the landslide.
