This slip on Hooper Ridge Road  at the 3.63 mile marker was caused by the storms in February 2018 that resulted in the FEMA DR 4360 disaster funding declaration in April 2018.  The photos above show the progressive nature of these landslides.  The first photo was taken in March, 2018.  The shoulder is completely gone when the 2nd photo was taken in April, 2018.  The slip continues into the road surface (3rd photo, January 2019).  We received the FEMA obligated funding on January 16, 2019, about 11 months after the disaster began.  We combined this repair with three other drilled shaft wall repair projects and accepted bids on May 7th, 2019.  Alan Stone Company of Cutler, Ohio, was the low bidder at a cost of $ 80,460 for this slip repair, and a total cost of $ 315,470 for all four drilled shaft repairs (CR 36-4.89, CR 99-1.68, CR 39-0.94).  The wall construction on CR 36-3.63 was completed at on July 30th, 2019, and paving was completed on September 4, 2019.
