Community in Charles Village Fears Similar Street Collapse


Neighbors living in Charles Village where the landslide occurred earlier this week fear a similar incident could happen again if other retaining walls are also structurally unsound.

CSX trains are running again and work continues on 26th Street in northeast Baltimore.

Neighbors worry about certain areas, specifically along 26th Street about two blocks east of the collapse that has a similar structure.

"This little block made international news, so I mean, this kind of stuff has a concern, you know?" said Antonio Baines, who lives nearby.

Neighbors told FOX45 that CSX actually replaced the retaining wall along the street two blocks away about 20 years ago but say that brings little comfort to concerns.

"It does look a little more stable, but at the same time, it's just as old. There is some concern," said Baines.

Those who live nearby say many have been expecting this for years.

Mat Leffler-Schulman explained, "My first reaction was like 'Duh! This was inevitable.' The people on the street have been saying this was going to happen for years."
