PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A new landslide briefly closed the Historical Columbia River Highway near Troutdale.

According to Oregon Department of Transportation, about 150 cubic yards of material fell onto the road between Stark Street and Woodward after multiple days of rain in the area. This comes just 9 days after a different landslide closed another portion of the highway from the Bridal Veil interchange and the Multnomah Falls parking lot.

The area reopened after being closed following the morning commute to remove a fallen tree.
