For anyone travelling the L&C through the Columbia Gorge in Oregon:
A large rockslide has closed a section of US 30, aka the Historic Columbia River Highway, at Rowena Crest (about 10 miles west of The Dalles.) This slide is going to take awhile to clear, so ODOT estimates two to three weeks of closure.

Here are the known detours:
  • Use the shoulder of Interstate 84 between exit 69 (US 30/Mosier) and exit 76 (Rowena)
  • Cross the Columbia River at The Dalles Bridge (US 197) and use Washington Route 14 between The Dalles and Stevenson (cross to Oregon side at Bridge of the Gods)
  • Use Dry Creek and Sevenmile Hill Road between Mosier and The Dalles. It's got quite a climb, though.

We have heard from a trusted local source that this has been repaired and the road is reopened.
