Highway 224 Road Closure – Update November 19, 2014
Access through the area of the slide has been provided for emergency vehicles and those who work or live up river.
A pilot car guides them through every hour at the top of the hour during daylight hours.
A contractor continues to remove rock from an earlier slide, and should have the lanes clear by the end of the week.
The Forest Service will be begin to remove hazard trees along the highway the week of November 24. Hazard tree removal could take several days.
Once the hazard trees are removed, ODOT will determine the next steps for the closure.
Due to deteriorating conditions on the slopes along OR 224 there is still no estimate to when OR 224 will open to all travel at this time.
