BAKER CITY The Oregon Department of Transportation this summer will install a new reader board and snow zone sign for eastbound traffic on Interstate 84 near milepost 300 west of Baker City. The new signs will signal winter chain requirements and other alerts for travelers prior to chain-up areas and key freeway exits.
The new variable message sign will be in the median between the eastbound and westbound freeways near mile point 300.18. The new rotating snow zone sign that lists various chain requirements will be on the north shoulder at mile point 300.9, prior to the eastbound chain-up area.
Installation of the signs will require lane closures in the work area throughout the summer months. The construction contract for the project will be bid in late March with project completion by fall 2013.
