The lower section of Alex Barr Road south of the Historic Columbia River Highway in the Columbia River Gorge is closed to traffic by a landslide.  Alex Barr Road is a narrow, steep road in a rural area that leads from the Historic Highway to Haines Road.  The closed section is between the Historic Highway and the first house.  A Multnomah County crew will work to clear the slide and hopefully reopen the road on Monday, June 14.

During the closure, the alternative route is Alex Barr Road to Haines Road to Larch Mountain Road to the Historic Highway.  Multnomah County maintains Alex Barr Road and 269 miles of roads in unincorporated areas and three east county cities. For information, visit www.multco.us/roads.
