Cornell Road closed for hours after rockslide

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A rockslide kept Northwest Cornell Road closed between the tunnels for hours Friday.

Portland police said the rockslide partially spilled into both lanes of traffic at 4:30 a.m.

Cornell was closed in both directions as a result of the slide. After more than eight hours, crews had cleared the debris and engineers determined the hillside was stable.

The road was reopened at 1 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
