Westbound freeway lanes re-open

Kathy Orr/Baker City Herald — Trucks fill the parking lot at Baker Truck Corral this morning as the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 are closed between Ontario and Pendleton due to icy conditions from Pendleton west.

The westbound lanes of Interstate 84 are throughout the Blue Mountains, from Ontario to Pendleton. The closure started at La Grande and was extended to Baker City, and then Ontario, after trucks filled the available parking spaces in La Grande and Baker City.

Eastbound lanes from La Grande to Baker City and to Ontario remain open.

Highway 30 from Baker to North Powder, and Highway 237 from North Powder to Union and La Grande, also are open in both directions.

Eastbound lanes of I-84 are closed 5 miles west of Boardman at Milepost 159. Due to extreme icy conditions other highways are closed in Morrow and Umatilla counties, including all of I-82 between I-84 and the Washington border, and Ore. Highway 11 from Pendleton to the Washington border.

Road conditions are extremely hazardous in Morrow and Umatilla County and travelers should postpone travel in this area until conditions improve.

Baker City Councilors passed a resolution Tuesday night to declare 16 properties in default in payment of costs incurred from weed and property abatement.

An ordinance allows the city to bill property owners for the cost of weed and/or property abatement performed by the city or its contractor. The city has done that on all 16 properties.

But the Council has to pass a resolution before before liens can be recorded on the properties.
