Oregon DOT: From Historic Road to Trail

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Since 1987, the Oregon Department of Transportation has worked with partners to preserve, enhance and reconnect the Historic Columbia River Highway from an old road to a state trail with international significance. Much work has been accomplished – 63 of the original 73 miles are now open to travel. Only 10 miles are needed to complete the connection.

Join us and filmmakers, A Path Less Pedaled, as they take us back in time to our nation’s first scenic highway-and give us a glimpse into what the future holds for this pinnacle of early 20th century rural highway design.
