Convoy To Come Through; Bridge Staying Open
A National Guard convoy will be travelling the Interstate 84 corridor to La Grande to deliver 150 cots and blankets to a potential COVID-19 shelter. Guard members are playing an important role assisting the State and Governor Brown to supply provisions and provide logistics to the response effort. The North Central Unified Incident Command also said there is no truth to rumors about a closure of The Dalles Bridge. ODOT Project Manager Cari Charlton told the command team that there are no scheduled closures due to COVID 19 or construction projects in 2020. The Dalles Bridge will remain open to motor vehicle traffic. For more information, visit Wasco County, Oregon – COVID 19 Information Center’s Facebook page or call 211.
