On Friday morning, debris from a landslide slid onto West Burnside near SW Barnes, according to a traffic advisory from the Portland Bureau of Transportation.

PBOT crews have closed the eastbound lane of West Burnside at SW Barnes and are urging the public to travel cautiously, observe all lane detours and directions by reader boards and flaggers, and use alternative routes.

At around 9 am this morning, PBOT crews closed West Burnside in both directions between Barnes and Skyline to clean up debris from the landslide that occurred earlier in the morning. A detour has been marked in the area, and all cars are expected to follow the detour.
