EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Drivers heading to Triangle Lake this weekend will need to plan alternate routes as crews keep working this weekend to clear a landslide on Highway 36.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1UHGPHV) the two-lane highway was blocked last Sunday when dirt, rocks and 100-foot-tall trees slid onto the road.

Oregon’s transportation department said Friday that there is no local detour.

Officials say 1,500 cubic yards of debris have been removed so far, and that they hope the highway can reopen Monday.
