Massive rock slide in rural Douglas County

0217 rock slide gridDouglas County, Ore. — Massive rocks covered an access road in rural Douglas County.

The Oregon Department of Transportation says steep slopes, along with weak rock and soil, and winter rain, caused this rock slide on the Tyee Access Road. The slide is about 15 miles west of Sutherlin, on an access road managed by the BLM.
