On February 16, 2017 a slide occurred along NE 124th Street near Highway 203. The roadway is located south of Duvall and is a sole access road for approximately 100 residences.

The slide is about 100 feet in length and is on the valley or downhill side of the road. About half of the road is undermined. A large section has completely failed. Road crews have diverted water to help reduce the risk of losing the road, but there is still potential for road failure if the area continues to receive rain, as the ground could become supersaturated and have additional washouts or failures.

NE 124th Street near Duvall restored to two lanes following slide repairs, five days ahead of schedule

NE 124th Street near Highway 203 and Duvall has been restored to two lanes following slide repairs. The county's priority was to maintain emergency access for the community. Crews worked 10-12 hour days, six days a week, to reopen the road. Additional future work includes county crews installing plantings and Frontier Communications performing pavement repair on a fiber optic cable patch in the roadway. This work has not been scheduled yet and will not require the road to be closed.
