I-84 Changes: Were You Prepared?
I-84 reopened this morning after a brief weekend closure, and the new lanes caught a lot of drivers off guard. At the I-5 split, there is now only one lane that goes to I-5 north. This morning as I was covering traffic for Chris McGinness on KXL and KGW, I watched countless drivers make last minute lane changes right there at the split, putting themselves and other drivers in danger. O-dot made the changes to avoid sideswipe crashes, which was happening a lot with the old configuration. No reports of that happening this morning, but just be prepared next time you drive that stretch of freeway. Click here
