Hermiston DMV to Reopen Monday

The Hermiston DMV field office is scheduled to reopen on Monday, Dec. 23, after a two-week closure for repairs from a burst water pipe.

The office, located at 945 E Fourth Street, will resume its normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Wednesdays when the office opens at 9 a.m. All DMV offices will be closed Wednesday, Dec. 25, for the Christmas holiday.

The Hermiston office closed for two weeks for repairs to plumbing, walls and flooring after a water pipe burst in the ceiling during early December’s unusually cold “Arctic blast” weather. DMV staff discovered water leaking from a pipe in the ceiling on the morning of Monday, Dec. 9. The office was closed for the safety of customers and employees.

DMV worked closely with the building owner to expedite the office repairs. During the closure, employees were reassigned temporarily to other nearby DMV field offices.
