PORTLAND - A large landslide just south of Oregon City blocked both lanes of traffic on Highway 99E yesterday. Highway crews spent most of the day cleaning the debris off the road to clear traffic.

ODOT encourages drivers to avoid the area. Southbound traffic will turn left at 2nd, right on South High Street, continue to South End Road and connect with Highway 99E. Trucks will not be allowed on the detour. Northbound trucks will turn around at New Era Road and head to Barlow Road to connect with Interstate 5 or I205.

The large rocks forced crews to bring in heavy machinery to clear the road.
