PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

All lanes of Highway 30 are completely open after several landslides closed areas near the St. Johns Bridge and Rainier earlier this week. 

The St. Johns Bridge landslide happened Tuesday afternoon and blocked both lanes of traffic.

ODOT crews worked to clear the west-bound lanes so east and west bound traffic could split the highway.

Around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, ODOT said all lanes were back open.

Around 5 a.m.Thursday morning officials reopened all lanes of Highway 30 between milepost 38 and 44 near Rainier. 

Weather experts say landslides are still a threat in the area. Please use extra caution while driving.
