(TOLEDO, Ore.) - A landslide has closed U.S. 20 one mile west of Toledo (milepost 5.5).

The Corvallis-Newport Highway remains closed and is expected to stay that way until at least into the evening as the slide involves approximately 4000 yards of material and at least 60 trees.

The landslide is blocking both lanes of travel.

There is a local detour in place on SE Bay Boulevard and Southeast Moore Drive. Travelers should consider using alternative routes such as OR 34 south of U.S. 20 or OR 18 to the north.

UPDATE: Corvallis-Newport Highway is now expected to remain closed near Toledo until midday tomorrow (Friday).
