The Multnomah County Roads department has closed an unpaved road in the Columbia River Gorge after road staff discovered a section damaged by slope movement. Northwest Palmer Mill Road is closed between the Historic Columbia River Highway near Bridal Veil and Northwest Brower Road.
No residences are accessed from the road.
The road will remain closed while engineers inspect the damaged section and determine what repairs are needed. The nearest alternate route from Brower Road is E. Haines Road and Northeast Alex Barr Road to the Historic Columbia River Highway.
