TROUTDALE, Ore. — A stretch of more than 65 miles of Interstate 84 between Troutdale and The Dalles reopened late Monday night after a 19-hour closure due to extreme winter weather conditions.
The freeway was closed both directions early Monday morning until it was safe to reopen. Don Hamilton with the Oregon Department of Transportation describes the conditions as “Nasty”.
ODOT recommends staying home as long as possible when the weather is this unpredictable.
Our crews from the Gorge sent these pics. Underneath there is I-84. 😳
