Weather Alert

ODOT: East. Ore.

ODOT: East. Ore. – I-84 is open in eastern Oregon. The route WAS closed yesterday evening due to a wildfire near the interstate, but it was open by 10 p.m. (June 28). Some versions of Google Maps may be showing the interstate as closed between Baker City and Ontario, and suggesting alternate routes. Travelers are advised to check for current status of highways in Oregon, including I-84. We are trying to get Google Maps to correct the error, as some motorists/freight haulers are using alternate state, county and other routes to detour around the incorrectly listed I-84 closure. Most alternate routes are not suitable for freeway traffic and may actually bring travelers closer to the Willow Creek Fire activity. Again, I-84 is currently open in eastern Oregon. For updates, continue to check or call 511 / 800-977-6368. Outside Oregon call 503-588-2941. More Info
