Traffic alert: I-84 between Broadway and Gowen back open

Statesman staffMay 21, 2013 

Interstate 84 is back open after blocked in both directions between Exit 54: Broadway Avenue and Exit 57: Gowen Road because of downed power lines.

Fire crews earlier extinguished a grass fire on both sides of I-84 near Broadway Avenue that triggered a traffic delay warning.

Officials said the fire could have been started by the wind arcing power lines.

The public is advised to call 911 if they see arcing lines.
