Things are looking a little rough out there today. Obstacles range from a severe winter storm in the Northeast, to rock slides, and a big HazMat accident. Here are a few quick tips from some of our drivers.
Let us know what it looks like where you are in the comments!
Chris: ‘I-84 from Troutdale to Hood River is closed eastbound all day due to a rock slide. Westbound is down to one lane but they are advising for all to to shut down.’ [Oregon]
There is no current timetable for opening up eastbound I-84 according to ODOT. It seems that a hill alongside I-84 gave way and spilled a huge amount of rock onto the roadway.
No resulting injuries have been reported.

Interstate 64, I-66 and primary highways in VDOT’s nine-county Culpeper District are currently snow-covered. Secondary roads are mostly in severe condition, with deep snow accumulated and in some cases packed down on the road surface.
VDOT urges motorists to stay off the roads unless travel is absolutely necessary.
