Every day, Claire Henry drives past a dozen steel beams that hold up the remainder of a retaining wall along Vickery Boulevard.

Like many, she wonders when the slipping soil and buckling retaining wall might spill on to the street.

"It definitely makes me uncomfortable, because there is more of that wall that at any time can have some structural issues to it," she said. "I'm worried about that a little bit."

Across North Texas, landslides are popping up along city streets, highways and fields as heavy rains and snow cause the soil to shift and slide.

In Tarrant County, the Texas Department of Transportation is monitoring three large landslides and a dozen smaller slides along freeways, spokesman Michael Peters said.

"We just need a good dry spell to fix them," he said. "None of those in Tarrant County on the state side are impacting traffic."

In Fort Worth, city crews are working to fix a 20-foot-tall piece of retaining wall along West Vickery Boulevard near South Hulen Street. The wall collapsed on Feb. 5 onto a passing car, causing the car to roll.

The driver was not injured.

The street has remained closed and homeowners were told to stay out of their backyards until workers can fix the retaining wall. No timetable has been set on the construction.

TCU geology professor John Breyer said the landslides are largely a product of the heavy rainfall that North Texas has seen over the past few months.

"If you get lots of rain, you can expect floods and slopes to move," he said. "That's what is happening."

Breyer said there is little that city and state agencies can do to prevent landslides from happening.

"The problem is you've added water, so the solution is to dry things out," he said.

For that reason, Henry is waiting for summer when the dry weather will stop the landslides.

"I see a lot of slopes with dirt moving down on them, and I wonder when that's going to end," she said.
