The right lane of I-84 eastbound will remain closed throughout the rush hour. The TT Unit and the lumber will also remain in the right lane throughout the rush hour. The left and center lanes will remain open. I-84 remains congested in the area of the rollover, so motorists should expect delays or seek alternate routes.
