Landslide closes all lanes of I-84 in the Columbia River Gorge

The excessive rain and rapid snowmelt have led to multiple landslides in the Columbia River Gorge.

TROUTDALE, Ore. — All lanes of Interstate 84 have now reopened between Troutdale and Hood River after closing all day due to a landslide on Thursday morning. 

The westbound lanes had closed for much of the morning and early afternoon, but reopened by 2 p.m. Eastbound lanes opened shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday.

The landslide is located about two miles east of where a landslide killed a woman near Dodson last January. Her car got swept away and authorities later recovered her body.

The Historic Columbia River Highway 30 is still closed east from Larch Mountain Road in Corbett. Earlier Thursday morning, crews cleared a landslide that briefly closed Highway 30 between Vista House and Larch Mountain Road.

Stretches of I-84 have shut down throughout the week following the major snowstorm that hit the Columbia River Gorge and the Cascades. Lingering hazardous conditions prompted the Oregon Office of Emergency Management (OEM) on Wednesday to ask people to avoid traveling on roads that could be impacted by severe weather.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for central Columbia River Gorge until noon Thursday. The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts a mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain with snow accumulations of up to one inch.
