Boulder crashes onto I-84

A large rock, described as being the size of a Volkwagen Beetle passenger car, fell onto Interstate 84 about one mile west of Hood River Sunday afternoon blocking one traffic lane. No vehicles were involved and it took ODOT crews using heavy equipment about two hours to remove the obstruction.

During wet periods and high winds, OSP and ODOT remind motorists to be alert for the potential of falling rocks, slides and other roadway obstructions. Most are not the size of this boulder, but they may be unexpected and cause problems for drivers traveling in the Columbia River Gorge and on other highways.
