Mt Angel FD and EMS are responding to a crash on Wilco Hwy just south of Monitor McKee Road. One lane is partially blocked. Watch out for emergency vehicles and traffic congestion.
Portland news media outlets are reporting that Marion County has just received approval to enter Phase 1 re-opening as early as this Friday. More details as they become available…..
From ODOT this morning:
ODOT has closed the northbound lane of OR 99E about a mile south of the Oregon City Tunnel after maintenance crews spotted new cracks on a large rock slab inside the mesh netting on the hillside.
Northbound traffic has been shifted to the center median lane along the three-lane road. The slab, about five feet up on the hillside, needs to be removed to make sure it won’t threaten the road.
The northbound lane will remain closed Tuesday during inspection of the rock slab and full road closures may be needed during removal. ODOT will re-open the lane as soon as conditions are safe.
