I-84 opens ahead of schedule in Eastern Oregon

Oregon Department of Transportation

ODOT: East. Ore.:
I-84 westbound freeway is now open in eastern Oregon. Good coordination with all responding crews, including law enforcement, fire stations, emergency responders, ODOT and over a half-dozen tow companies helped clear the route enough to open the freeway several hours ahead of earlier estimates. Disabled vehicles were moved off the roadway, with some being staged at the nearby truck weigh station and rest area.
“Outstanding response from our tow companies and all who responded, including law enforcement and EMS,” said ODOT District 12 Manager Marilyn Holt. “They got everyone out fast, which made clearing the scene go well.”
Much more work is needed and travelers should expect reduced speeds, crews working near the roadway, lane restrictions near the crash site, and winter conditions along the route.
Restrictions on OR 204 (Tollgate Hwy.) and OR 245 will soon be lifted. The eastbound freeway was open around midnight.
