Road officials, drivers gear up for winter weather


AS I MENTIONED FOR — MENTIONED. THE BREEZE WILL LEAD SOME COOL AIR INTO THE GORGE BUT SHOULD NOT BE IMPACTING MUCH OF THE VALLEY AS WE GO OVERNIGHT SNOW ON THE ROAD, WE SAW THAT EARLIER, SOMETHING WE WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH. TREVOR: OF COURSE, THE PREVIOUS WINTER STORM IS STILL FRESH IN OUR MEMORY, THE STORM TRAPPING HUNDREDS, EVEN THOUSANDS OF DRIVERS IN THEIR VEHICLES OVERNIGHT. WE WANT TO GET TO JENNIFER DOWLING IN TROUTDALE WITH HOW WERE RESTING UP TODAY FOR WHAT THEY CALL THE BATTLE AHEAD. WE ALSO CAUGHT UP WITH SOME TRUCK DRIVERS WHO ARE CONCERNED THIS COULD BE ANOTHER BIG ONE AS WELL. I KIND OF EXPECT THE WORST AND YOU ALWAYS HAVE A GAME PLAN. JENNIFER: TRUCK DRIVER RANDY JACKSON HAS STOCKED UP ON SUPPLIES AND PREPARED FOR WHATEVER MOTHER NATURE MIGHT BRING OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. A LOT OF EXTRA EVERYTHING, CLOTHES, FOOD DRINK, MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS ALL CHARGED UP. JENNIFER: HE ALSO HAS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOLS A DRIVER CAN CARRY FOR EXTRA TRACTION. OH YEAH, PLENTY OF CHAINS AND EXTRAS BECAUSE USUALLY YOU CAN GO THROUGH THEM REALLY QUICK. JENNIFER: JUST A COUPLE WEEKS AGO TRUCK DRIVERS WHO FAILED TO CHAIN UP ON SNOWY ROADS SLID ACROSS I-84 NEAR TROUTDALE , BLOCKING ALL THE LANES. ODOT SAID THE ACCIDENTS CAUSED A 20-MILE BACKUP IN THE GORGE WITH MOTORISTS TRAPPED FOR AROUND 12 HOURS. IT TOOK US HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS TO GET THE ROADS CLEARED UP AGAIN. WE ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE TRUCKERS KNOW THAT THEY AVE TO HAVE CHAINS ON, THERE IS GOING TO BE CHAIN ENFORCEMENT ON THE ROADS. JENNIFER: RANDY SAYS TAKING A MOMENT TO PREP IN WITNER WEATHER IS ALWAYS WORTH THE EXTRA TIME. SOME GUYS, THEY DON’T EXPERIENCE IT, SO THEY THINK IT’S A BIG HASSLE, BUT IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING YOU CAN CHAIN UP PRETTY QUICK, ABOUT 30 TO 40 MINUTES AND YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID EVERY TIME. YOU HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR OTHERS FREEZE. TREVOR BACK TO YOU. ,TREVOR: THANK YOU SO MUCH. OF COURSE THESE WINTER WEATHER , CONDITIONS ARE ONLY GOING TO RAMP UP AS WE NEAR MONDAY MORNING.

    failed to chain up because of the lack of odot preparation, signage and chain up areas before hood river. There is a safety gap in the gorge for trucks drivers and during this time the website was not being updated regularly. I used that site and truck drive the area, so let's not get it twisted and blame the drivers on Odot failure of insight and lack of chain up areas and truck pull outs in that area of i84.
