Part of a retaining wall at a construction site in Rosslyn collapsed last night, leading to a landslide and the evacuation of a neighboring apartment building.

A collapsed retaining wall on a construction site caused major traffic issues this morning and led to the evacuation of a nearby apartment building in Rosslyn late last night, according to NBC Washington.

The wall collapse led to a landslide at the site, located on Clarendon Boulevard between North Ode Street and North Oak Street. An apartment building and its parking lot are adjacent to the construction site. The apartment building has been evacuated.

The site is the future location of developer JBG's Sedona and Slate residential buildings. Clarendon Boulevard and Ode Street were closed as a result of the collapse.
