Erosion and a slide have closed both lanes of Bell Road in Clackamas County between Grahams Ferry Road and Baker Road. The slide happened earlier this afternoon.
Clackamas County road workers and a geo-technician have made an initial inspection of the slide, and will return for a more thorough inspection on Feb. 17. At this point, according to road officials, it appears the closure will last at least one week and perhaps longer.
A detour has been established from Grahams Ferry Road to Tooze Road to Baker Road. More information will be released once the investigation is completed.
