PA landfill fix underway

June 27th, 2014 - 5:08am

(PORT ANGELES) -- The Port Angeles Landfill Project will finally be getting underway, as Magnus Pacific work crews begin making access roads towards 400,000 cubic yards of waste that has been leaking into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

City engineer, Mike Puntenney, says that the work will likely take place over the next two weeks as crews will eventually begin moving tons of old garbage from and old landfill cell. That garbage threatens to spill over a failing bluff. The city is spending nearly 19 million dollars on the project to move the trash and fix the failing bluff.

Puntenny says that during the course of the project, the main road to the transfer station will be busier than usual.

The extra traffic flow will mean the public will have to plan ahead and allow extra time to drop of recyclables or to dump trash. Project managers also are stressing that the posted 15 m.p.h. speed limit should be obeyed.
