PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A stretch of the Historic Columbia River Highway has reopened after a slide had a portion of the roadway closed for hours on Sunday.

A stretch between Multnomah Falls and Bridal Veil was shut down in both directions, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation. The debris from the slide has since been removed.

The slide was a result of the region being slammed with rain on off and on all day Saturday.
