All lanes of eastbound I-84 are open
As of 1p, Monday, ALL eastbound lanes of I-84 are open from Troutdale to Hood River. Contractors working for ODOT removed more than 3,000 cubic yards of rock and debris from Wednesday evening’s landslide at milepost 61, three miles west of Hood River. That’s more than 300 dumptruck loads!
However – a “debris flow” warning is in effect for the Columbia Gorge until 5p tonight: Travelers should be watchful of possible landslides, rockslides, mudslides, etc., due to soggy hillsides and cliff faces saturated from all the heavy rain the Gorge has seen in the past few days. Please drive carefully while scanning the hillsides and road ahead.
