Lee County approves million dollar mudslide fix

Posted: Updated:

LEE COUNTY, Ia. (WGEM) -- After two years of mudslides along Mississippi River Road, the Lee County Board of Supervisors has approved a million dollar fix.

Heavy rains over the last two years have destabilized the soil along many of the bluffs causing more mudslides.

Temporary repairs have been made to reopen the road, but officials say now is the time to work on a permanent solution.

The project calls for a slope-lift starting just north of Keokuk.
