Crack on I-580 in Livermore Turns Into Landslide

NBC Universal, Inc.

A section of Interstate 580 near the Altamont Pass was in bad shape Monday when what started as a crack, turned into a landslide.

Caltrans was forced to shut down a lane on eastbound 580 in Livermore, east of North Flynn Road, and crews continued to work into the overnight hours Tuesday to repair and stabilize the section.

The crack runs parallel to a section of the highway where the retaining wall fell away from the shoulder, and slid down an embankment.

There’s no estaimated time for when the work would be done and the lane would reopen.
