Slide Keeps Highway 101 Closed

The slide on U.S. 101 MP 344 - called the Hooskanadan Slide -- moved about 10 feet both horizontally and vertically Tuesday.

ODOT says the goal, once it slows down, is to gravel a portion of the highway and get it open under 24/7 flagger control.

Nearby Carpenterville Highway (OR 255) is open to traffic, but it should not be considered for use as a viable detour for commercial truck traffic. Expect a check point on either side of Carpenterville Highway tomorrow morning to turn away oversized commercial vehicles.
