Crews Worked All Night to Reopen I-84

The Oregon State Police along with several local agencies worked together throughout the night to open Interstate 84. Yesterday afternoon, snowy roads led to nearly 100 crashes on I-84, closing both directions to all traffic in Eastern Oregon at about 1 o’clock. Troopers and crews worked all night to remove more than 170 vehicles out of the almost 2 mile stretch of interstate. Seventy-one uninjured people who could not drive due to the blockage or damaged vehicles were transported to the Pendleton Convention Center. A local taxi company and a church provided vans to transport persons from the convention center to local hotels as needed. Medics transported 19 patients. There are still several sections of I-84 with extreme winter road conditions, so traveling is still hazardous. OSP recommends staying home, but if you do have to travel consult www.tripcheck.com for conditions and alternate routes.
