This morning, Friday February 14, 2014, at 4:34 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of a rock slide on Northwest Cornell Road, between the tunnels.

Officers have arrived and located a rock slide that is described to be partially into both lanes of traffic.

Cornell Road is closed on both directions as a result of the slide.

No injuries have been reported.

Commuters should avoid Cornell Road as the road closure likely will be lenghty.

City of Portland crews have been called to the scene to asses the rock slide and begin clean-up efforts.
