KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - Work is underway to remove a section of a growing rockslide along a Kodiak road.

KMXT (https://is.gd/MbQbv2) reports a company called Golden Alaska Excavating was contracted by the Alaska Department of Transportation to do the work on Rezanof Drive between piers 2 and 3.

Company owner Rick Ryser says rocks have been falling down the Pillar Mountain hillside over the road for several decades. He says the rocks have built up behind a rock wall to the point where it’s a safety hazard for drivers.

Ryser says the city of Kodiak also played a role in the excavation decision because the rocks were getting in the way of work at Pier 3.

The work is expected to be completed in early August.
