PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Removal of rocks and other debris from the Historic Columbia River Highway after a landslide on Thursday was stalled on Sunday due to dangerous conditions.
Workers were able to remove 32 truck loads from the highway on Saturday. However, debris were still falling from the hillside on Sunday, so ODOT delayed the rest of the clean up until Monday.
ODOT has called in specialists in debris removal from Seattle who are set to start work Monday morning.
Once the road is cleared, inspectors will check for damage. There is still no estimate on when the road will re-open.
