Landslide blocks lane of West Burnside Street

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A small landslide blocked a westbound lane of West Burnside Road near Pittock Mansion in Portland's West Hills this weekend.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation said they planned to clear the roadway near Northwest Hermosa Boulevard and reopen it to traffic on Sunday.

The slide likely occurred due to soil saturation caused by recent rainfall.
