BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Ada County Highway District has closed roads in an upscale Boise neighborhood due to landslide risk.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1QTUtSl ) that the closures are in a residential area near Table Rock where one home has already shifted and another is showing signs of stress due to ground movements.

Crews began investigating the problem last month when the ground started moving more than 1 inch a week.

Signs will be posted Friday warning divers to avoid the shifting roads. Residents will be able to enter the area at their own risk.
