Construction began back in spring after months of engineering design and geotechnical analysis.

Work included the construction of a soldier pile and anchor retaining wall, new inlet and cross pipe, and paving. 

In the past two years, protection and neighborhood restoration from landslides have cost the city more than $8 million.

The Diana Street reconstruction cost $880,000.
