Crews tackle complex hill stabilization project
SHERIDAN — Those who utilize Sheridan’s pathway system along Goose Creek have likely noticed earth movers and construction workers tasked with adding stability to the hill that borders the Sheridan Junior High School parking lot.
Crew members that look small in comparison to the large trucks, walls and mounds of earth started work on the hill stabilization project in June and aim to have the project substantially completed by Sept. 29.
While to the casual observer, it may look like crews have just moved dirt around, the planning for the project has taken months of preparation and cooperation among various entities including the city of Sheridan, Sheridan County School District 2 and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, among others.
The problem with the landslides in that area date back decades.
