The cliffside will continue to have rock chipped away at it by the crews. The closure of Highway 30 occurred on Tuesday night as a result of a landslide that came down the cliffside and spilled out onto the highway.

According to the ODOT, Highway 26 is still the most efficient means of transportation between Portland and the northern coast of Oregon. There is no timetable available for when Highway 30 will be completely accessible again.

If you choose to drive on Highway 30 during the nighttime opening this week, the authorities ask that you do so at a speed that is extra cautious and keep an eye out for flaggers. Delays are to be expected for motorists as they travel through the landslide zone.

Crews are currently working their way down the side of the cliff to clear away a large section of the loose rock that was left behind by the landslide. The potentially dangerous rock scaling work can only be performed during daylight hours, according to ODOT.

Sunday, the manager of ODOT’s Maintenance District 1 said that running traffic during the day is not an option because it is “too dangerous and complicated.” “Tomorrow, we will try to bring in another team of scalers in the hopes of doubling our current level of productivity.”

Drivers are reminded by ODOT not to use their GPS devices to navigate around the closure. GPS may suggest less developed roads, but there is a chance that these roads are not maintained. Officials warn that driving on those roads, particularly during the winter months, can be extremely hazardous.
