Upper Larch Mountain Road closes for winter



Multnomah County Transportation will close the upper section of Larch Mountain Road in the Columbia Gorge today, Thursday, October 25 at 9 a.m. for the winter season.  Every autumn the county closes upper Larch Mountain Road by installing a snow gate near mile post 10.  The closure protects the traveling public from adverse weather conditions and reduces maintenance costs associated with snow removal.  The gate is opened each spring.  With the recent arrival of snow at higher elevations, several motorists have needed assistance at the upper parking area. 
 
Larch Mountain Road is the highest road in Multnomah County, reaching an altitude of 4055 feet.  Multnomah County maintains Larch Mountain Road and 300 miles of roads and bridges.  For more information, visit www.multco.us/roads <http://www.multco.us/roads> .
