NEAR HOOD RIVER, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Transportation opened all eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 to nearly all vehicles after a rock slide last week.

Both lane reopened Monday afternoon.

Nearly 2,000 cubic yards of rocks and debris plunged down the side of the hill and onto the freeway Wednesday night just west of Hood River near mile post 61. Both eastbound lanes and one westbound lane were closed.

The westbound lane reopened to all traffic on Sunday afternoon, ODOT said.

A debris flow warning is in effect until 5 p.m. Monday. ODOT says drivers should be aware of the possibility of more slides.
