Terwilliger opened at 11:30 this morning

After nearly four months of being closed, Terwilliger Boulevard was re-opened between Capitol Highway and Barbur Boulevard at 11:30 this morning.

For the past month, crews have been cleaning up landslide debris on a plateau just above the boulevard. The work took place beneath Burlingame Place where an Oct. 5 landslide began that destroyed two homes and damaged five others.

Early this morning, contractors completed their clean-up work to the satisfaction of the Portland Department of Transportation.

The closure of Terwilliger diverted some 6,000 commuters a day. Many used the route to get to and from OHSU. Neighbors on side streets complained about commuters deviating from the designated detour route.
