Photos- U.S. 101 Slide at MP 344 -Hooskanadan Slide

ODOT: SW Oregon - 02/26/19

BROOKINGS -  The slide on U.S. 101 MP 344 - called the Hooskanadan Slide -- has moved about 10 feet both horizontally and vertically today. The goal, once it slows down, is to gravel a portion of the highway and get it open under 24/7 flagger control.

Nearby Carpenterville Highway (OR 255) is open to traffic, but it should NOT be considered for use as a viable detour for commercial truck traffic. Expect a checkpoint on either side of Carpenterville Highway tomorrow morning to turn away oversized commercial vehicles.
