Columbia Heights Slide

Posted on 27th March 2014 at 15:58

You need to be aware that Columbia Heights Road is closed to through traffic this morning between Fishers Lane and Laurel Road. A mudslide was reported on the road yesterday afternoon, coming down across the fog line and into the lane of travel. The City of Longview Engineering Department examined the slope above the road and made the decision to close the road. Because of the uphill slope movement, Columbia Heights Road will remain completely closed between upper and lower Maplewood Drive, and only local traffic will be allowed access up to the closure point. Drivers needing access to the area should use alternate routes, including Laurel Road, Glenwood Road and Virginia Way off of Pacific Way, or Nevada Drive off of West Side Highway. This closure will remain in place until further notice.
