EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Transportation officials say Highway 36 west of Triangle Lake will be closed for several days after a large landslide.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1M0YfOc ) that Oregon Department of Transportation spokeswoman Angela Beers Seydel says the Sunday landslide left the two-lane highway blocked by 100-foot-tall trees and between 100 and 300 cubic yards of rocks and debris. The cleanup work is expected to last three to five days.

Officials are urging motorists to take alternate routes, such as Highway 126, as there is no local detour.

Triangle Lake is about 35 miles northwest of Eugene.

Blachly School District officials say buses won’t run Monday west of the lake on the Greenleaf route.
