I-84 Westbound Lanes in Oregon to Reopen Later Today
UPDATE, 4:20 p.m.: The westbound lanes of Interstate 84 between Pendleton and Ontario are now open, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
ONTARIO, Ore. (KLIX) – The Oregon Department of Transportation has reopened the eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 from Pendleton to Ontario.
The westbound lanes, however, are still closed between Ontario and Baker City, exits 374 to 302, respectively. They are expected to reopen later today.
“Ontario truck parking remains full and motorists heading west on I-84 through Idaho are advised to stay where they are until the freeway is completely open in Oregon,” according to ODOT. Also:
Due to the lengthy freeway closure, there are few-to-no safe truck parking areas available in communities between Pendleton and Hood River. Motels in these communities may be booked full. Westbound travelers should plan to use alternate routes west of Pendleton. Other closed highway sections in Union and Baker counties include: the Cove Hwy. (OR237) between Island City and Cove (MP 0-13); Pyles Canyon Hwy. (OR237) between Union and North Powder (MP17-32); and Dooley Mtn. Hwy. (OR245) between Unity and junction with OR7 (MP 1-36).
