Rockslide reported on River Road South in Salem, OR

Posted on December 23, 2021

River Road South in Salem between Owens Street SE and Minto Island Road SE is closed to all traffic due to a landslide. This closure will remain in effect while cleanup and geotechnical assessment activities are taking place. The detour route is Croisan Creek Road S.

At about 2:30 this morning (Thursday, Dec. 23) a significant landslide occurred on River Road South between Owens Street South and Minto-Brown Island Park Road South.

No injuries have been reported.

The nighttime estimate is that the slide involved 150 cubic yards of material in the catchment area, blocking the northbound lane and into the southbound lane.  One of the boulders is about 2 cubic yards in size. The slide is still moving and the hillside remains unstable. Once the area has stabilized, we will be able to provide a better assessment.
