A landslide closed OR 36 three miles west of Triangle Lake at mp 24.5 just after 3 p.m. today. The slide is about 10 feet west of a slide area that closed the road for a week last winter.

ODOT hydrogeologists will assess the slide Thursday morning. At this time it appears that about 400 yards of dirt, rocks, and trees cover the roadway. More could come down.

Travelers will need to take alternate routes and plan for the roadway to be close at least through Thursday.
