Great video showing extent of landslide on AZ 87 -Beeline Hwy

The East Valley Tribune has posted 2 minutes of excellent video of the landslide on Hwy 87 between Phoenix and Payson. The head scarp is clear, as are amazing buckles in the road that look like the toe of the slide either plowed the asphalt ahead of it, or may incorporate at least part of the roadway in the slide.

The EVT reports that even if the road opens in the next day or so, travel will be restricted until at least June. [above: some of the slumped material on Hwy 87. East Valley Tribune]


  1. It's neat footage, but not exactly what I thought you meant. I was expecting to see something like the YouTube footage of this Japanese landslide.

  2. Good point. I'm going to edit the title.
