Portland, OR - The Bureaus of Development Services and Transportation jointly announced that SW Terwilliger Boulevard at SW Capitol Highway and SW Burlingame Terrace has been reopened.

SW Terwilliger Boulevard has been closed since October 8, 2008, to protect public safety as a result of a landslide that occurred at SW Burlingame Place and SW Terwilliger Boulevard.

According to Doug Morgan, Site Development Section Manager with the Bureau of Development Services, "A private contractor has completed work to remove much of the slide debris from the impacted properties, grade the slope, and install drainage systems and erosion control measures to improve stability of the slide area."

"I know this street closure has had a significant impact on the surrounding residents and businesses who frequently travel the SW Terwilliger Boulevard corridor," said BDS Director, Paul Scarlett. " I truly appreciate the community's patience and understanding as the Bureau of Development Services and Portland Bureau of Transportation worked collaboratively to insure that the street is once again safe for use by the public."

Development Services and Transportation also announced that SW Burlingame Place, which has been closed since the landslide, will remain closed until further notice when it is deemed safe for public use.
