Bell Road repair planned for April

Date

Clackamas County plans to repair the damage from a landslide on Bell Road between Grahams Ferry Road and Baker Road in April. The slide occurred in mid-February and the road has been closed since.

The three-part plan to permanently repair the Bell Road slide includes:

  • Removing the slide debris
  • Building a rock buttress and shoulder to hold the slope in place
  • Replacing the failing culvert next to the slide (to help avoid future problems related to drainage)

Once repairs begin, they are expected to be completed within three weeks. The detour that has been established from Grahams Ferry Road to Tooze Road to Baker Road will remain until the repair is completed.
