A small landslide blocked state Route 7 Sunday four miles west of Eatonville, State Patrol spokesman Guy Gill said.

The slide happened about 6:20 p.m. at milepost 31 of SR 7.

Initially one lane was blocked, but Gill said about 9:15 p.m. that both lanes had been closed when the hillside continued to move. A detour was being set up at Peterson Road East south of the slide, and 416th Street East north of it.

Gill expected the road to be closed overnight.

No one was hurt, and no cars were involved in the slide.
