Baltimore landslide to cost $18.5 million to fix

The Baltimore Department of Transportation estimates it will cost $18.5 million to repair a street collapse.

The landslide followed an April 30 storm that delivered roughly five inches of rain. It swallowed eight cars, trees, a street lamp and a large swath of sidewalk, and buried the railroad tracks below in debris.

The department said Tuesday it has received approval for an $18.5 million allotment from the city’s finance department to go toward installing a temporary retaining wall, constructing a permanent wall and engineering costs. The original wall that collapsed was owned by freight company CSX Corp.

Residents living along the stretch of 26th Street that collapsed have been temporarily relocated, though officials say they anticipated residents will be able to return home around June 15.
