CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Workers with rockslide removal contractor Charles Blalock and Sons on Friday, November 27 constructed an aggregate base pad for a 275 ton crawler crane on the west side of the rockslide while crews continued to remove loose rock and debris from the slope. The contractor also installed erosion and sediment control measures to prevent runoff at the site.
US-64 in Polk County continues to be closed at mile marker 17.6 due to a major rockslide near the Ocoee 2 Dam. A portion of Little Frog Mountain slid into the roadway on November 10, 2009. The project to remove the rockslide debris and repair the roadway is underway and expected to take at least eight weeks.
