NW Newberry Road closed by a landslide, Jan. 2017.

Several Multnomah County roads are currently closed to traffic:

  • Larch Mountain Road is closed at Milepost 6 due to the Eagle Creek Fire.  The upper section of the road will remain closed due to the fire, and then due to winter weather. Visit this web page for updates.  
  • Palmer Mill Road in the Columbia Gorge is closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire. The road is expected to reopen this winter after the fire danger has been reduced.
  • NW Newberry Road is closed to through traffic between US Highway 30 and NW Skyline Blvd. due to a major landslide that will require an engineered repair project. The landslide is large and will be costly to repair.  The county expects design work and property acquisition will be completed so that construction can begin in late spring/early summer 2018.The alternate route for through traffic is NW Cornelius Pass Road. Passenger vehicles, but not trucks, may also use NW Germantown Road and NW McNamee Road. Local and emergency traffic have access up to the closed section, which is near 13342 NW Newberry Road. The county is developing design options and conducting geotechnical studies needed for the design.  For more information, see the project web page.

All other Multnomah County roads are open.
