PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A landslide has closed a portion of SW Sam Jackson Park Road near OHSU Friday evening. 

According to the Portland Bureau of Transportation, Sam Jackson from Terwilliger Boulevard to Shriners Hospital has been closed due to the slide. The PBOT says 30 cubic yards fell, which is equivalent to two dump truck loads.

A spokeswoman for OHSU says Sam Jackson is closed to all vehicles – including emergency vehicles – with all traffic being rerouted to Campus Drive and Terwilliger. The slide is not impacting hospital operations at OHSU. 

Sam Jackson Park Road has reopened in both directions, and access to the OHSU Marquam Hill campus has been fully restored according to OHSU.
