(Portland, OR)  --  Transportation officials are facing setbacks as they work to reopen the Historic Columbia River Highway following last year's devastating Eagle Creek Fire.  The Oregon Department of Transportation says frequent rockslides caused by last year's fire have been spilling debris across hiking trails and into the road.  The department was hoping to reopen a six-mile section of the highway this fall, but officials say the rockslides are hindering their efforts.  The highway that runs through the scenic Columbia River Gorge has been closed since last September.
