Historic Highway closure 2/23-28

Post by greglief » February 20th, 2020, 5:52 pm

ODOT has announced that the Historic Columbia River Highway will be closed between February 23-28 for rockfall work near the Oneonta Tunnel. Specifically:

At 4 pm Sunday, February 23 the Historic Highway will be closed around-the-clock to all users between Multnomah Falls and Interstate 84 exit 35 (Ainsworth State Park). The road will reopen by 8 pm Friday, February 28.

If you are planning to hike in the Gorge during that time frame, use the eastbound approach via Corbett and Vista House.
