Landslide on Vashon causing delays

Update 11:00pm
103rd Avenue SW on Vashon Island near the north ferry terminal will remain closed until 5 a.m. tomorrow morning (Friday, Feb. 10) due to a slide. From 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. the roadway will be open to northbound traffic only in order to accommodate ferry rush hour traffic. At 9 a.m. the roadway will close so clean up crews can continue their work. Clean up is taking longer than expected due to the amount of debris including a large tree."

King County Department of Transportation said today that a significant landslide happened this afternoon on 103rd Avenue Southwest near the Vashon Ferry Terminal parking lot.

Crews are working to channel ferry traffic onto Vashon Highway Southwest instead of 103rd.

Crews estimate it will take about eight hours to clear debris from the road. Travelers in the area should expect delays.
