Landslide closes interstate exit in the Gorge

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A small landslide has spilled debris on the side of an exit ramp along eastbound Interstate 84, forcing the Oregon Department of Transportation to close that ramp through the weekend.

KOIN reports that Exit 41, the ramp to the Northeast Eagle Creek Loop in the Columbia River Gorge, is the ramp that was closed.

ODOT officials said they are concerned about more slides because of rain in the forecast.
