The westbound and eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 are now open in eastern Oregon, however, many other routes remain closed.

Crews from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) continued to remove snow on closed routes Monday so they can be open as soon as possible, however, continuing snow and wind is hampering the clean-up process.

Progress is being made 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.

ODOT officials strongly urge people to not drive on closed highways. Getting stranded can put others at risk. Also, avoid blindly following GPS navigation devices that can lead you onto remote, unmaintained roads.
