U.S. 30 on-ramp to westbound I-84 remains closed west of La Grande

The Oregon Department of Transportation is reminding travelers that the Interstate 84 Exit 259 westbound freeway on-ramp at the west end of La Grande remains closed due to construction work and is not expected to open until the fall.

Numerous motorists continue to drive past several bright orange construction signs and reader boards positioned along Adams Avenue and U.S. Highway 30 that identify the freeway on-ramp is closed. Twenty-four-hour-a-day flaggers have been stationed at the westbound closure near the Gangloff Park pull out to stop errant motorist who are ignoring warning signs and traveling toward the closed on-ramp.

“There have been days when over a 100 people have driven past the freeway ramp closure signs, thinking they can get to the westbound on-ramp at Exit 259,” said ODOT Region 5 Area Manager Craig Sipp. “Some travelers are from out of the area and following their GPS devices, which do not reflect highway construction and detour information.”
