Public Meeting Scheduled for Porcupine Landslide
*The following is a press release from the Bridget-Teton National Forest*
Alpine, Wyo., March 13, 2018 – The Bridger-Teton National Forest will hold a public meeting to answer questions on the Porcupine landslide which is affecting the Greys River Road, (FS Road 10138).
The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at the Alpine Civic Center located at 121 US-89, in Alpine, Wyoming.
The landslide occurred on February 8, 2018 approximately 17-miles up the Greys River Road near Alpine, Wyoming. The quarter-mile long landslide has buckled the road and created large crevices and undulations. It has constricted portions of the Wild and Scenic Greys River where the earthen debris has reached the river and some pooling and backing up of water is occurring in the flood plain. A closure order is in place for the 17-mile corridor from Alpine to the landslide area.
