Mile Marker 155 Rockslide Fencing Update

Catching debris near mile marker 155

This past winter, a combination of gravity and a cold, snowy spell helped to bring down a significant rock slide near mile marker 155.  The slide threatened to put a damper on hiking and biking near the Paw Paw Tunnel. However, a section of protection fencing was placed below the slide site, and so far it’s holding up pretty well.  There is still a significant amount of debris on the hillside, but as long as it comes down a little bit at a time, things should be okay.  The picture shows the fence holding back a small amount of rock that has slid down the hill recently.  I’m not a geologist, but so far, so good!
