Small landslide closes exit on I-84 in the Gorge

News

IN THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, Ore. (KOIN) — A small landslide spilled debris on the side of an exit ramp along eastbound I-84, forcing ODOT to close that ramp through the weekend.

Exit 41, the ramp to the Northeast Eagle Creek Loop in the Columbia River Gorge, is the affected ramp. 

ODOT officials said they are “concerned that more slides will come with the upcoming rains given the bare underbrush stripped away by last year’s Eagle Creek Fire.”

As of Friday morning, debris was still falling.

There’s no alternate route, so drivers are asked to plan accordingly in the meantime.
