Crews are now making headway on slowing down the landslide that is threatening homes and businesses in Jackson.

Officials say the slide is only progressing at about half-an-inch-per-day, that's down from the one-inch-per -day when the slide was first noticed and the one foot per day rate we saw last weekend.

If everything continues according to plan, residents of upper budge drive could have access to their homes restored by the end of next week.

“In the best case scenario if all goes well, that means if the weather stays as good as it has been; if the drilling continues at the rate it has been, we might be able to open up access to residences up on upper Budge Drive by the end of next week," said Roxanne Robinson, Unified Incident Command Public Information Officer.”

So far, officials say they have put almost $500,000 towards stopping this landslide.
