Councilman Buscaino update on White Point Landslide

"Last week, work crews under the supervision of the Bureau of Engineering uncovered a crack eight feet below the surface while performing excavation work at the White Point Landslide in San Pedro. While we do not know how long the crack has been there, the preliminary investigation determined that there has been no additional earth movement since the landslide in November of 2011.  A more detailed geotechnical analysis is being conducted and should be complete in about a week. The current work to drain and stabilize the hillside is unaffected and remains on schedule. The safety of the hillside continues to be my top priority. That's why I support the recommendation from the White Point Landslide Advisory Committee to restore the roadway with a retaining wall that will maximize the safety and stability of the entire area," said Councilman Joe Buscaino who represents Los Angeles' 15th Council District.

    Mr. Buscaino,
    There are many people in San Pedro who do not want Paseo del Mar re-opened. We do not want a return to the nightmarish weekend traffic that existed before the slide. And, there are many people who do not care for the heavy-handed, one-sided, un-Democratic approach your office has taken in refusing to listen to us.

    The neighborhood is quiet, safer and much more pleasant. If the geologists determine that the road can safely be re-built, what is the City going to do to slow traffic down on Paseo?

    Thank you for the update. I hope they can put the road thru again.
