PENDLETON, OR (KPTV) -

Extreme winter driving conditions closed down a major highway in eastern Oregon Tuesday.

All lanes of Interstate 84 were closed Tuesday morning between La Grande and Pendleton. The Oregon Department of Transportation said multiple vehicles spun out on the freeway due to the weather and blocked the road.

The westbound lanes between La Grande and Meacham were open again by 11:30 a.m. The eastbound freeway remained closed between Exit 216 at the Wildhorse Resort, seven miles east of Pendleton, and the Meacham area.

The closure extended between Milepost 216 and Milepost 245.

There is not yet an estimated time for reopening those lanes.
