Beginning May 20, the first construction season of a three-year project along I-84 between MP 248 and MP 260.7 will begin, restricting loads to the following widths:

  • 12 feet in width in the Eastbound direction
  • 14 feet in width in the Westbound direction
  • Mobile homes with eaves are authorized provided the base width does not exceed the above widths

These restrictions will be in effect at all hours, seven days a week, and are estimated to last until Nov. 1, 2013.  
 
The I-84 Kamela Interchange - 2nd Street Xing (La Grande) Project involves resurfacing the freeway, adding and enhancing chain-up areas, upgrading median barriers, performing corrective work for rock fall areas, and adding a truck climbing lane for westbound traffic along the Spring Creek grade near MP 247.  

This project will occur over three construction seasons in 2013, 2014, 2015, with the same restrictions each year.

There is no local detour available.   
                                    
Carriers transporting loads exceeding these dimensions will need to take authorized alternate routes, such as US 20 & US 97.
 
For questions or assistance with determining authorized alternate routes, please contact the Over-Dimension Permit Unit Monday-Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. at (503) 373-0000.
