Charles Village's 26th Street landslide

The Department of Transportation will put in a request with the Board of Estimates to spend $18,563,863 on repairing the stretch of East 26th Street that collapsed onto CSX railroad tracks on April 30.

How the costs of restoration are going to be divided between the city and CSX has yet to be hammered out, but it is the opinion of Transportation Director William Johnson that the city not delay with repairs and that “recoveries be made to reimburse the City as items are negotiated and settled over the coming months.”

Those residents who have been displaced since the landslide? Johnson said they will be unable to return to their homes until June 15.
