Highway 213 slide repair near Mulino to begin tomorrow, continue through October

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will begin repairs on Aug. 23 to Highway 213 in Mulino where a large crack across the highway was discovered in March.

One lane in each direction will remain open during the day and, if necessary, traffic will be directed by flaggers at night. Repairs are expected to continue through October.

Work crews will excavate five feet down from the roadway to repair several sections of the highway near South Eldorado Road. The contractor will then insert layers of rock and geogrid (a material used to reinforce the highway base), and pave the surface.

The crack across the highway developed as an ancient landslide reactivated during record-setting rains over the winter. Later this year, ODOT plans to install horizontal drains below the highway to help drain water from the landslide area.

More information is available from ODOT on the project website or by contacting Community Affairs Coordinator Katelyn Jackson at Katelyn.jackson@odot.state.or.usor 503-731-8503.
