PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A number of landslides around the region are causing problems for drivers.
After a month of what felt like never-ending rain, landslides shut down busy roads including West Burnside — with the biggest landslide the area has seen in two years. All lanes of W Burnside will be closed at Barnes Road with planned day closures from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Sunday.
Another landslide forced a portion of the Historic Columbia River Highway between Multnomah Falls and Angel’s Rest to close on Tuesday morning. That closure lasted until Thursday morning around 10:30, after Oregon Department of Transportation crews along with geologists and hydrologists determined there was no longer a threat for any more sliding. ODOT will close the the section down again on Monday morning to complete cleanup.
KOIN 6 News will continue to monitor road conditions.
