PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Multiple drivers reportedly crashed after losing control on icy roads in eastern Oregon Wednesday, forcing officials to close Interstate 84 between Pendleton and La Grande.
The Oregon Department of Transportation closed both eastbound and westbound lanes from Exit 216 east of Pendleton and Exit 265 east of La Grande.
It’s unclear when the interstate will reopen, but officials said drivers should expect a lengthy closure. The Tollgate Highway has also been shut down.
Slick road conditions led Pendleton School District to delay classes two hours.
