Upper Larch Mountain Road closes November 23

Multnomah County Transportation will close the upper section of Larch Mountain Road in the Columbia Gorge on Wednesday, November 23 for the winter season. The closure will be in place by 3 pm. Every autumn the county closes upper Larch Mountain Road by installing a snow gate near mile post 10. The closure protects the traveling public from adverse weather conditions and reduces maintenance costs associated with snow removal. The gate is opened each spring.

Larch Mountain Road is the highest road in Multnomah County, reaching an altitude of 4055 feet. The snow gate is at an elevation of approximately 2300 feet. Multnomah County maintains Larch Mountain Road and 300 miles of roads and bridges. For more information, visit www.multco.us/roads.
