(WYDOT / Pitchengine Communities) * (Lander, Wyo.) - A water-saturated hillside began moving toward North Highway 789 overnight three miles east of town. "The hillside was still moving when I got there," said Jim Thomas on Wednesday morning. Thomas is the Wyoming Department of Transportation's area maintenance supervisor in Lander. Thomas said WYDOT is placing cones and signs in the area today warning drivers about the slope failure/slide on the east side of the five-lane highway between Lander and Hudson near the top of Snavely Lane. Fremont County received between 2 and 6 inches of rain this past weekend. Soils remain saturated with water. Another slope failure occurred a mile south of Lander on Wyoming 131 (Sinks Canyon Road) this past weekend, but it didn't reach the highway.
