Routes in Eastern Oregon remain closed due to winter storm

I-84 Closure

I-84 and U.S. 395 remain closed in eastern Oregon due to severe weather and stuck, unchained trucks blocking lanes. Crews have been working through the night to get the routes open, but heavy snowfall, blizzard like conditions and other challenges have hampered operations. I-84 is closed both eastbound and westbound between Exit 216 (6 miles east of Pendleton) and Exit 265 (east of La Grande). I-84 westbound is also closed to all traffic between Ontario Exit 374 and La Grande Exit 265 due to limit truck parking in Baker City and La Grande. Local westbound traffic trying to get home to Baker and Union Counties MAY be able to access the westbound freeway between Ontario and Baker City. Check TripCheck for Ontario Level 2 closure details by clicking on the Ontario westbound closure icon. Other highway closures include OR 204, OR 245 and a portion of U.S. 30 between Baker City and Haines. These routes are not viable detours for freeway traffic and are only open for local freight and passenger vehicles. Crews are working to open the highways as soon as possible. Please continue checking or call 511 / 800-977-6368 for updates conditions. Outside Oregon, call 503-588-2941. Do not blindly follow GPS navigation devices/apps for detour options, as many other routes are impacted by the winter-like weather. Stay in safe location until TripCheck shows state routes are open.
