Oregon: 20-foot-deep sinkhole closes Beef Bend Road



Beef Bend Road has been closed indefinitely near Southwest 146th Avenue after a 20-foot-deep sinkhole opened along the popular road just outside of Tigard city limits.
According to Victoria Saager, a spokeswoman with the Washington County Department of Land Use and Transportation, the sinkhole is about 1.7 miles west of Pacific Highway.
The hole is about two feet wide on the shoulder of Beef Bend Road at Southwest 146th Avenue, but reportedly etends about five feet under the road's surface, Saager said. The hole is about 20 feet deep.
