One lane of westbound Interstate 84 reopened Sunday evening east of Interstate 82, according to a press release from Oregon Department of Transportation, and a news release Monday morning reported one eastbound lane is also open.

The road was initially closed because of high water and road damage.

Westbound travelers can continue on the freeway between Exits 188 and 182, with no detour off Interstate 84. 

All lanes have been closed since early Friday between exits 182 and 188, with a detour around the damaged section. The transportation department reopened the one lane and set the speed limit at 45 mph because of remaining road damage and because crews continue to work on emergency repairs.

No timeline has been set for reopening the remaining lanes.
