PENDLETON — Oregon Department of Transportation’s District 12 is making improvements to a spot of Interstate 84 infrastructure to help ease chaotic traffic conditions during severe weather events.

“Prior to Exit 216 eastbound, we’re going to have an automated closure system,” said Rich Lani, ODOT District 12 manager. “There will be advance notification of the freeway being closed using variable message signs. We will automatically close the freeway using drop arms that will come down and force traffic to leave the road at Exit 216.”
