SR 401 Closed Near Megler
State Route 401 is closed in both directions just north of the Astoria-Megler Bridge due to concerns about an unstable slope above the highway.

A small landslide closed one lane of SR 401 on Feb.2, 2011. WSDOT crews cleared the slide and got traffic moving, but during a follow-up assessment geotechnical experts found a 12-foot crevice in the slope above the west side of the highway. The unstable slope could shift at any time, bringing soil, rocks and trees down onto SR 401 with little warning.

WSDOT will reopen the road as soon as repairs are completed to stabilize the slope and the highway is safe for drivers
