UPDATE: U.S. 30 between Haines and North Powder is closed and not available as an alternate route for I-84 WESTBOUND traffic. I-84 remains closed WESTBOUND between Baker City (Exit 302) and 6 miles east of Pendleton (Exit 216) due to multiple vehicle crashes near Poverty Flats area (around MP 223). Dense fog and snowy conditions are present in this area. The closure began this morning in La Grande, but has moved to Baker City do to no more safe areas for trucks to park in La Grande. Emergency crews have been working to remove crashed vehicles and injured motorists, and to get stranded traffic down from the mountain pass. ODOT is hoping to open the WESTBOUND freeway within the next couple hours. Travelers are advised to wait until the route is open. If alternate routes are used, expect winter conditions on many highway sections. The eastbound freeway is currently open.  For update road and weather information check TripCheck.com or call 511 / 800-977-6368. Outside Oregon call 503-588-2941.
