Landslide closes westbound I-90 near Idaho line


MISSOULA, Mont. — A landslide has forced the closure of westbound lanes on Interstate 90 five miles east of the Idaho border.

The Missoulian reports Monday that westbound traffic is being diverted to the eastbound lanes for 1 1/2 miles.

Earlier, all westbound traffic had been being detoured at Mile Marker 33 in St. Regis to Montana 135 and Highway 200 north to the Sandpoint area.

Oversized loads are still required to take the detour.

The landslide is at mile marker 6.5.

Crews were working to clear the slide.
