New Historic Highway Segment

Posted by West Columbia Gorge Chamber on Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Plans have been submitted by The Oregon Department of Transportation to build a 1.2 mile bike and pedestrian trail along the Historic Columbia River Highway. This would begin at Starvation Creek State Park and end at Lindsey Creek. Read below for more details on this plan.

The completion of the newest trail segment is also designed to align with a 100-year celebration of the Historic Highway — the first section of which was dedicated in 1916. Once that section of trail is open, Stallman said that “if all goes well,” ODOT would move forward on construction for the next section of trail that would continue west from Lindsey Creek to Wyeth, with a current estimated completion date of mid-2017.
