The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors voted Tue to declare a state of emergency in response to the gigantic mudslide that has closed Morgan Territory Road since Feb. 24.

The declaration allows the county to streamline the environmental evaluations and public contracting protocols that are required for public works projects, thus speeding up the repair work, county Public Works Department director Julia Bueren told the supervisors.

It’s important that we expedite the repair of the slide area as much as we can, Bueren said.

It’s a priority that we work on this alternative route, remarked Supervisor Diane Burgis, whose district also includes Blackhawk and Diablo.
