Big slide between Brookings and Gold Beach – Not looking good…

A landslide continues to block a scenic section of Oregon’s southwestern coast on U.S. 101 between Brookings and Gold Beach. Dan Latham, an Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman, said the landslide began Monday near Hooskanadan Creek about 20 miles north of Brookings near milepost 344. Latham said the area, which is along the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor on U.S. 101, has been a problem spot for landslides since the early 20th century.

This slide was triggered by heavy rains. “This is something that we deal with every year,” Latham said, “but this is the largest since 2005 or 2006.” The slide covers a 125,000-square-foot area of coastal highway and stretches just under one-quarter of a mile. Latham said the “dramatic” slide continues to move at a rate of about 2 feet an hour.

ODOT says use an alternate route. One such route is Carpenterville Highway. It is a narrow and winding road not recommended for commercial vehicles.

Carpenterville Highway is colored light brown east of 101.

Carpenter Road is colored brown on the map to the east of 101.
