COALVILLE — A landslide Tuesday cut off access to a frontage road alongside I-80 about eight miles east of Coalville.
Dispatchers received a call around 7:15 p.m. about a landslide blocking Old Echo Highway and a railroad track used regularly. The frontage road only accesses some cabins, said Summit County sheriff's detective Ron Bridge.
The landslide also knocked down power lines, but no structures are in danger, Bridge said. The area has mountainous terrain and sagebrush hills but few cliffs that would cause a landslide. Summit County public works officials were dispatched to the scene with heavy machinery to clear the area.
