Historic Columbia River Highway near Interstate 84 milepost 52
Cost and Funding
Project cost: $18,831,522
The Historic Columbia River Highway was left partially intact after Interstate 84 was built, with the middle section cut into pieces or partially destroyed. Efforts are underway to create vehicle-free paths for cyclists and pedestrians, transforming the abandoned sections into the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail.
Sixty-five of the original 73 miles of the Historic Columbia River Highway are now open to travel either by motor vehicle (Historic Highway or connecting county roads) or by foot and bicycle (State Trail). Three miles are in construction, which leaves only 5 miles needed to complete the connection.
Once the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail is complete, previously severed stretches of old highway will be transformed into world-class cycling and pedestrian destination.
No longer will cyclists need to travel on Interstate 84 from Troutdale to Hood River.
