The Oregon Department of Transportation posted a collage of images of the rockslide on Facebook.

“Southern Oregon is prone to landslides with steep slopes and weak rock and soil. Add a heavy dose of winter rain and events like this occur,” ODOT said in the post.

The rockslide comes about a month after a massive sinkhole closed part of Highway 101 in Harbor.
