Cabbage Hill’s Blowing Snow Is Keeping Travelers Stranded [PHOTOS]
The Oregon Department of Transportation is advising drivers that Interstate 84 remains closed both eastbound and westbound in eastern Oregon.
The closure is between Exit 216 (six miles east of Pendleton) and Exit 265 in La Grande due to blowing snow, extremely limited visibility and spun-out vehicles on the mountain pass.
Oregon State Route 204 (tollgate highway) is closed to all but local traffic due to severe winter conditions. Oregon 11 is also now closed due to blowing/drifting snow and limited visibility in some locations between Pendleton and Milton-Freewater.
These routes will be open when conditions improve enough for safe travel. Expect winter conditions on other eastern Oregon routes.
