Washington Lands, W.Va. -


On Wednesday, a representative from the West Virginia Division of Highways is expected to assess the Washington Lands slip site in Marshall County to see what can be done to fix it.



One neighborhood in Marshall County is speaking up as the hillside behind their homes is crumbling down.

WTRF went to Washington Lands on Friday when the ground first started to give way. On Sunday, the property owner said the land slid more than 40 feet since Friday. 

Slips have been a problem in the area since 2009 when the state of West Virginia and a construction company hauled the dirt left over from the Route 2 expansion project to the top of the hill. 

The owner of the property says the state has been contacted about the problem, and they are planning to look at the slip site this week.
