Sinkhole takes out NE Kane Road in Gresham

Posted: Updated:

Crews in Gresham have closed part of Northeast Kane Road after a section of roadway collapsed due to a sinkhole.

The road is closed between 17th Avenue and 23rd Avenue, and crews on the scene said it will take several weeks to replace the washed out section.

The road failure happened between 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m., and there have been no reports of injuries and no vehicles were damaged because of the sinkhole.

Crews shut down a water main nearby over concerns of contamination, but it was reopened after determining there was no impact on water quality.
