Yeager Airport to Start Remediation Program

The airport experienced a landslide three months ago

After a landslide at Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia, an engineering firm is expected to release a remediation plan this week to fix the partially collapsed hillside.

The landslide happened a little over three months ago, and those in the area are patiently waiting for it to be fixed.

"The part that slipped was in the steepest part, all of it wasn't built on the same level or the same angle, but there is still quite a bit of material that's up there,” said Mike Plante, a public information officer for Yeager Airport.

Over the past few weeks, the airport has built a sediment dam and created a holding pond. The project is expected to take one year. Once the material is removed, engineers will begin rebuilding.
