Landslide Blocks Stretch of U.S. 431 Monday Evening; Six Vehicles Damaged

Landslide 10

According to Alabama Law Enforcement Agency accident reports, a landslide occurring just north of Attalla Monday evening brought traffic to a standstill along that stretch of Highway 431 for approximately two hours.

Just before 6:00pm, a 50 foot long section of rock, brush, tree limbs and mud came crashing down the mountainside, completely covering the two southbound lanes.

Six vehicles were listed on accident reports as being damaged in the mishap, most by falling rocks, although one vehicle reportedly struck the debris; luckily, no one was hurt.

Alabama Department of Transportation crews quickly responded to the scene to start clean up operations; they had just left Cherokee County where a section of Highway 68 had caved in.

That section of roadway was shut down by ALDOT between mileposts 27 and 28, due to the wet conditions and a shoulder slide on the mountainside at Leesburg/Sand Rock – however, the eastbound lane remains open.

That detour for westbound traffic is south on U.S. 411 to north on U.S. 431, to north on I-59, to Exit 205 at Alabama 68.
