PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A winter weather storm closed I-84 in both directions Monday afternoon in eastern Oregon after multiple crashes near La Grande, the Oregon Department of Transportation said.
But the closures later shifted to other spots and only affected the westbound lanes 3 miles west of Baker City. That closure affects westbound travel between La Grande and Ontario.
The initial closure was at Exit 216, six miles east of Pendleton. OR-204 was also closed to non-local traffic, ODOT said.
In a tweet at 1:45 p.m., ODOT said, “UPDATE: I-84 WB and EB closed in eastern Oregon due to severe winter conditions and multiple crashes between Pendleton and La Grande. Conditions change rapidly. Carry chains, be ready to put them on and keep checking http://TripCheck.com.
