I-84 WESTBOUND freeway in eastern Oregon remains closed between Ontario and milepost 258, three miles west of La Grande. ODOT and hazardous materials crews are working to clean up spilled fuel from the roadway and shoulder, and move the damaged truck and trailer off the roadway. The route is expected to be open within the hour. The WESTBOUND freeway is closed in Ontario due to limit safe truck parking in Baker City.

Local residents trying to get to Huntington or Baker City from Ontario may be able to access the WESTBOUND freeway by showing ID at Exit 371. Check the TripCheck closure alert for a link to "additional information" about this local traffic detour option. Winter weather and icy conditions can be expected throughout eastern Oregon.

OR 204 and OR 245 are also closed to through traffic and are not viable detours for freeway traffic. Check or call 511 / 800-977-6368 for update conditions. Outside Oregon call 503-588-2941.
