I-84 at Hood River now able to carry more wide loads

| 3/22/2002

Recently, construction along Interstate 84 at Hood River, OR, has allowed the highway to be open to wide loads only every third week, generally from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday. However, a change will allow more access to the highway by wide loads.

The contractor's schedule now calls for leaving I-84 open to wide loads in both directions through at least April 22.

There is still a weight restriction on I-84 westbound, limiting gross vehicle weight to 105,500 pounds with legal axle weights only.

The next closure on I-84 at Hood River is anticipated to begin April 22.
