Crews tackle icy conditions on 181st Avenue; freeway ramps


Icy conditions persist in the vicinity of 181st Avenue and Interstate 84 this morning and motorists are advised to use extreme caution when traveling through the area, including freeway on- and off-ramps.

City transportation crews and the Oregon Department of Transportation "are tackling it with everything we can put on it to get it to melt," including sanding trucks and de-icing equipment, City Transportation Operations Superintendent Rae Sorenson said.

As of 9 a.m. she described conditions as a "solid sheet of ice," and urged caution between Sandy Boulevard and Glisan Street on 181st Avenue.
