Sinkhole closes OR 219 near St. Paul


ODOT has put detours in place

The Oregon Department Of Transportation reported Thursday evening that state highway 219 is closed in both directions just east of St.Paul after a sinkhole formed next to the bridge over the Pudding River.

The road will be closed indefinitely while ODOT engineers and maintenance staff determine the repairs. Northbound traffic is being detoured on to French Prairie Road to McKay Road and back to OR 219. Southbound traffic should continue on to River Road in St. Paul, then to Davidson Road and back to OR 219. Motorists should follow the detour signs. Expect delays.
