PORTLAND -- Crews worked into the evening Friday to clear a Coast Range highway blocked by a landslide.

The Highway was reopened just before 11 p.m. Friday night.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said crews were hauling away what was estimated as 500 to 700 cubic yards of mud, rock, trees and debris from Oregon 126. A detour was set up around the stretch at milepost 24. The highway links Eugene and Florence.
