OR334 remains closed in Umatilla County (Photo) - 01/04/22

Most state routes are currently open in eastern Oregon, however OR334 west of Athena in Umatilla County will remain closed for next few days. Crews are working to remove the six foot tall drifts with a snow blower and other equipment, but it's a slow process. Some progress was made today and crews will continue over next few days. Sections of several other routes, including I-84 have fresh or packed snow. Expect winter conditions throughout eastern Oregon and be prepared for long delays in the event of a closure, which could happen at anytime. Continue to monitor weather reports and check TripCheck.com before heading out. Or, call 511 / 800-977-6368. Outside Oregon call 503-588-2941. Stay home, don't take chances and stay safe.

I-84 open in eastern Oregon, other routes remain closed (Photo) - 01/03/22

I-84 eastbound and westbound lanes are now open in eastern Oregon, however, many other routes remain closed. Check TripCheck.com before making travel plans. ODOT crews continue to remove snow on closed routes so they can be open as soon as possible, however continuing snow and wind is hampering the clean-up process. Progress is being make on OR11 and other highways sections, but it is unknown at this time when the closed highways will be safe for travel. ODOT and county crews are currently working to get stranded motorists along the closed section of OR350 (Imnaha Highway) in Wallowa County back to a safe location. Do not attempt to drive on closed highways. When you do this and become stranded, you put others at risk. Also, avoid blindly following GPS navigation devices that can lead you onto remote, unmaintained roads. Conditions may get worse this afternoon/evening. Please stay home and stay safe. Continue to monitor highway/weather conditions at TripCheck.com, or call 511 / 800-977-6368. Outside Oregon call 503-588-2941.
