Snow removal blocks Larch's 'last call'

Anyone headed up to Larch Mountain, including Sherrard Point, in eastern Multnomah County today for the "last call" before the seasonal road closure may have ran into a roadblock near milepost 10.

Instead of the anticipated snow gates, a Multnomah County work truck blocks Larch Mountain Road near milepost 10 Tuesday around 1:30 p.m.

A maintenance worker manning the truck whom I spoke with said the crew was clearing three feet of snow between milepost 10 and the summit.

He said the closure was for the crew's and the public's safety, and that the road would not open until approximately 4:30 p.m.

Multnomah County Transportation is closing Larch Mountain Road to the summit near milepost 10 on Nov. 24 at 8 a.m. for the winter. The road will not reopen until the snow melts in the spring or early summer.

Regardless, it's a great picture.

Where is the reporter's supervisor who proofs the stories before they are published? First paragraph should be "may have RUN into a roadblock". Third paragraph: "the truck whom I spoke with". You spoke with the truck? Really? Aaahhh . . .
