NW Newberry Road closed by landslide
NW Newberry Road is closed in the west hills near Linnton between US Highway 30 and NW Skyline Blvd. due to a landslide on the lower section of the road. The road is closed to through traffic, but local traffic may access the road up to either side of the slide.
No timeline is available on how long the road will be closed. Landslides in hilly areas are more common after snow and ice events like those this month. For information on county roads, including emergency closures, visit www.multco.us/roads or MultCoRoads(link is external)on Twitter.
