The Historic Columbia River Highway re-opened Thursday morning between Multnomah Falls and Angel’s Rest two days after a slide closed the road. ODOT geologists and hydrologists hiked up the hillside above the slide Thursday morning to inspect conditions before deciding to re-open the road. Travelers, however, need to use caution in the Gorge, an area prone to slides under the best conditions. On Monday morning, ODOT will close this section of road to complete slide cleanup. This will include clearing a culvert blocked by slide material.
