Winter weather again shuts down I-84

Another bout of winter weather the night of March 9, 2023, strands semitrailers on Interstate 84 at Ladd Canyon east of La Grande. The Oregon Department of Transportation that night reported numerous spun out trucks and winter conditions shut down the freeway eastbound and westbound between Exit 265, 5 miles east of La Grande, and Exit 304 in Baker City due to multiple spun out trucks and winter conditions. I-84 eastbound also closed at Exit 216, 6 miles east of Pendleton, due to winter weather. The westbound side of I-84 westbound was closed to trucks at Exit 374 in Ontario for the lack of safe truck parking available in Baker City. ODOT advised drivers to visit or call 511/800-977-6368 for updates on road conditions. Outside Oregon, call 503-588-2941.
