Long Stretch of I-84 Shut Down Due to Fog and Snow
Beware before you head out the door this morning. This stretch of I-84 has been completely shut down for miles due to fog and snowy conditions.
If you are headed towards Oregon, this is going to be a problem. I-84 has been closed between Exit 216, seven miles east of Pendleton to Exit 265 in LaGrande in both directions according to KTVB.
So far crews are not giving a timeline as to when the freeway will re-open. Drivers are encouraged to use extreme caution and anticipate winter driving conditions on all alternate routes.
If you can stay home today, especially if you don't have a vehicle with 4-wheel drive, I would certainly encourage you to do so. No commitment is worth risking your life. Seriously.
We'll keep you updated on when this stretch of freeway re-opens and we'll keep you posted if other closures take place.
