COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, OR (KPTV) - A portion of Interstate 84 that was closed Thursday morning due to icy conditions has reopened.
The Oregon Department of Transportation closed all eastbound lanes from Troutdale to Hood River because of ice and snow that accumulated overnight.
The icy conditions caused several trucks to spin out near the Bonneville Dam, according to ODOT.
ODOT said the westbound lanes remained open.
Crews used sand, salt and graders to smooth the road and break up ice potholes along the eastbound lanes.
Eastbound I-84 reopened just after 6 a.m.
Travelers are asked to use caution and should expect winter conditions while driving through the Columbia River Gorge. Chains or traction tires are required from milepost 37 to 44.
