I-84 Westbound freeway now open in eastern Oregon (Photo) - 10/13/20

I-84 WESTBOUND freeway is now open in Ontario, Baker City and La Grande. Expect congestion as traffic gets back onto the freeway. Expect lane restrictions near La Grande Exit 265 to accommodate continuing clean-up operations. The westbound freeway was closed around 4:30 p.m. due to a truck crash that blocked lanes and spilled diesel fuel on the roadway near La Grande Exit 265. The Eastbound freeway was not impacted. Crews have been working for hours to clean up the diesel spill, which was spread along the pavement by rain, creating a slippery, hazardous mess. Absorbent material was used to clean up the fuel and get one lane open. Please continue to check TripCheck.com for update highway information, or call 511 / 800-977-6368. Outside Oregon dial 503-588-2941
