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

Several Multnomah County roads are currently closed to traffic:

  • Larch Mountain Road is closed at the snow gate near Milepost 10 due to impacts from the Eagle Creek Fire.  It is expected to reopen in late spring 2019. Visit this web page for updates.  
  • Palmer Mill Road in the Columbia Gorge is closed due to impacts from the Eagle Creek Fire. The road is expected to reopen sometime in 2019.
  • 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. Construction will begin in January 2019 so the road can reopen in spring 2019.  The alternate route for through traffic is NW Cornelius Pass Road. Passenger vehicles, but not trucks, may also use NW Germantown Road west of NW Skyline Blvd. and NW McNamee Road. Local and emergency traffic have access up to the closed section, which is near 13342 NW Newberry Road. For more information, see the project web page.
  • NW Rocky Point Road is closed to through traffic between Highway 30 and NW Skyline Blvd. as of Feb. 12, 2019 due to a crack in the road near Milepost 1.5 that indicates the risk of a landslide.  Residences at each end of the road can be accessed from Highway 30 and NW Skyline Blvd. A contractor has been hired to repair the road.  We expect to reopen the road to traffic by spring 2019.

All other Multnomah County roads are open.
