BOARDMAN — An eastbound vehicle with too tall a load struck the underside of the overpass bridge on Interstate 84 at Boardman on Monday, prompting its closure and an inspection.
The Oregon Department of Transportation will open one lane on the overpass bridge at Exit 164.
The transportation agency advised drivers crossing over the freeway at the location to plan for delays and obey traffic control flaggers, who will control the flow 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
One of the eastbound freeway lanes is also closed to accommodate bridge inspection and repair work.
ODOT stated it expects the overpass and eastbound freeway lane restrictions to remain in place for one to two weeks.
