Rocky Point Closure

Posted on 27th January 2016 at 09:12

North Pacific Avenue is closed in the Rocky Point area, after a landslide came down onto the roadway last night. This report came into Cowlitz County 911 at about 6:30 last night, reporting that the northbound lane was completely blocked, and that rocks were covering the southbound lane. A second caller reported that a car got stuck on the rocks in the southbound lane, but no injuries were reported. The slide has been reported to Patriot Rail and to Burlington Northern-Santa Fe, but they haven’t said if there’s any impact to rail traffic in the area. North Pacific Avenue is now closed between Cowlitz Gardens and Pacific Avenue Spur; Cowlitz County Roads plans to be out at the scene this morning, to assess the situation and to start determining their repair options. Use alternate routes to avoid delays.
