In another extreme example of weather-related hazards around Oregon this week, OR Highway 42 South between Bandon and Coquille is closed due to the collapse of a 50-foot section of road. The slide happened on Wednesday night, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

The closure will likely remain in place into next week. A recent release said the washout happened at milepost 5.4 near a culvert that was blocked. Heavy rains resulted in water pooling on the uphill side of the road and debris blocking the water flow.

Drivers who are traveling between the Bandon area and Coquille will need to use U.S. 101 and OR 42 to get around the closure. Check with www.tripcheck.com for updated information on the closure.

The Oregon Department of Transportation has closed OR 42S due to a slide from Wednesday, April 10, east of Bandon.
