ODOT ALERT FOR PENDLETON AREA OF I-84 EAST:

Travelers on eastbound Interstate 84 near Pendleton can expect intermittent delays tonight, June 24, between 8 and 11 p.m. The contractors will have pilot cars and temporary on-ramp closures to slow traffic between Exit 198 and milepost 215. The rolling slowdown operation is needed to create an opportunity when there will be no traffic on the eastbound lanes that cross under the overhead sign near milepost 214. On-ramps closed in the slowdown zone will be open once the pilot cars have passed.

These rolling slowdowns are a safety precaution to protect motorists while the contractor removes the overhead sign.

Once the sign is removed, travelers will see a single-lane closure to allow the contractor to remove the crane from the highway.
