WORK CONTINUES TO REOPEN MT. INDEX RIVER ROAD
January 14, 2014



This story originally ran Tues. morning 1/14 in the Chronicle's Breaking News column

(INDEX, WA) -- The Mt. Index River Road, hit by a large landslide Thursday east of Sunset Falls in Index remained officially closed Monday night, according to offIcials of Mt. Index Riversites (MIR), a co-op of owners in the area that maintains the private road.

A statement released last night at 8:30 pm by MIR noted that cars, "Continue to drive past the road closed signs and are getting stuck. This delays repairs and drives costs up."

The statement also noted that, "Several people got lucky and scooted out of here tonight behind the road contractor when he left at 5 pm."

PUD crews will be on site at 9:00 am Tuesday to start laying a new power line and new pole across the road from the slide, according to MIR officials who said a Snohomish County PUG spokesperson was "cautiously optimistic" that power would be restored to the small community by late Tuesday.

A portion of the road, the only way in or out for many residents, has been closed since Sunday night due a landslide that started some four weeks ago after heavy rains in the area.

Upwards of 80 people have been without electricity since Friday when the slide took out a power line.

The aerial video of the slide area below was shot by Scott Highland and posted to YouTube January 12. The waterfall in the video is Sunset Falls.



A contractor continued work Monday in the slow going work to remove a large amount of slide debris such as trees, limbs, rock, shrubs, mud and other material
