Wyoming Parking Garage Shifted by Creeping Landslide

A small parking structure is the latest victim of a slow-moving landslide in Jackson, Wyo.

Town officials say part of the two-story parking garage serving a restaurant and other businesses has shifted 3 or 4 inches. They say workers will try to shore up the structure so it won’t collapse.

The slide began April 4 and the shifting ground has sheared one house in two. Four homes, two apartment buildings and several businesses remain evacuated while road damage has blocked access to about 30 other homes.

Town spokeswoman Roxanne Robinson said geologists are preparing to drill four holes to try to find out what’s causing the slide.

Robinson says ground movement has slowed down to 3 inches a day after mysteriously surging several feet Thursday and Friday.
