Some highways out in Eastern Oregon were shutdown Tuesday evening because of winter weather conditions, according to KXL’s Traffic Reporter Brett Reckamp:

I-84 is closed in both directions in the LaGrande & Baker City areas.  We had west bound lanes closed, now east bound as well.  It is extremely dicey through there!  A number of traffic collisions and treacherous conditions.   Mount Hood Hwy 26 & 35 really rough – obviously. Reports from listeners about how dicey Hwy 26 through the coast range is from basically Hwy 47 to Hwy 53.
Quite a few closures in Central Oregon and East of Salem. Too many to list:  Here is the standard ODOT page.
