HWY100, 7 miles West of Ainsworth State Park MP 15 - 18; Closure
Landslides have closed the Historic Columbia River Hwy in both directions from Bridal Veil to Multnomah Falls, use an alternate route., The Historic Columbia River Highway will remain closed until late in the week of March 27 while ODOT evaluates the risk of further slides. The road has been closed since March 15 between Multnomah Falls and Angel's Rest because of continuing slides near MP 16. Recent heavy rains have left the hillside unstable. The decision to re-open the road will depend on rainfall, the stability of the slope and the progress of repairs needed on a damaged culvert.

ORE224, Tong Road near Damascus MP 10 - 14; Closure with Detour
Trucks over 40 feet use WB detour at 211 to 26 to 212, EB detour use 212 to Amsigger to 224. Other vehicles use Tong to 232nd or 232nd to Tong., GSI mobilized on Monday, March 6. Contractors spent their first week setting up the site and digging drainage trenches. Early work also includes removing the soil that failed but still remains on the slope. Stabilization of the slope and drainage improvements will continue through March and April. It is possible that once the highway is safe to open, the contractor may complete tasks along side the highway. Seven slides in 16 days forced closure of the highway at Tong Road. The closure is needed to protect the public from future slides and to allow the contractor to conduct emergency repairs on the 70-foot hillside. The closure could be in place for several weeks while the emergency fix is designed, a contractor is chosen and the repairs made. Local residents will continue to have access to their homes. Here are details of the closure, which began February 23rd: Westbound traffic will be directed onto Southeast 232nd Drive Eastbound traffic will be directed onto Southeast Tong Road. In addition, signs warn travelers of the closure and advise trucks to take OR 212 as an alternate route. ODOT is working with Clackamas County and the property owners to put the emergency repairs in place. Record rainfall has apparently weakened the hillside and contributed to the recent slides. Starting Feb. 5, debris slides have caused closure of the road at that spot seven times. ODOT hydrologists and engineers are working to devise the necessary emergency repairs.
