Westbound lanes of Interstate 84 have reopened between La Grande and Pendleton.

The interstate was closed for a few hours due to icy road conditions, according to an Oregon Department of Transportation press release. Eastbound lanes have remained open, but drivers are urged to continue to be cautious because of heavy traffic and hazardous winter weather.

Freezing rain and multiple minor accidents, including a jackknifed truck, caused the closure, according to a previous press release.
