BANDON, Ore. -- Highway 42S is closed five miles east of Bandon after a 50-foot section of the road collapsed Wednesday night, and the closure could continue into next week, officials said.

Drivers traveling between Bandon and Coquille should take Highway 101 and Highway 42.

Officials said the collapse happened at milepost 5.4 near a blocked culvert, which caused water to pool on the uphill side of the road.
