One of two main routes into Timber has been cut off following a landslide between Strassel Road and Cochran Road, Washington County Land Use and Transportation said Monday evening.
A precise location for the landslide was not immediately disclosed, but the area between the two roads—famously winding and steep—is known to have experienced landslides in the past.
A map showing the road closure can be found at https://wc-roads.com.
The closure means that to enter Timber, travelers will need to approach from Highway 26, with the route from Gales Creek and Highway 6 out of commission.
