Lewis & Clark Section 7 - construction warning - 2012
« on: July 19, 2012, 02:46:59 pm »
We just received this notice about construction occurring in Hood River, Oregon (maps 109 & 110) to extend the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail. It is navigable but may be tricky to get through/around. The project should be complete by Fall 2013.

For more information on the project, see this page from the Oregon DOT:

The great thing about this project is that it will eliminate the only and unnerving section of freeway riding between Cascade Locks and Troutdale. Beware too that there is quite the homeless encampment at the Moffett Creek bridge on the north side of the freeway. Westbound riders need to jump the vehicle access barrier when they see it, about 200 yds before the bridge. Someone painted an orange left arrow at the location - unless it fades, that's the spot to get on the freeway, for now.
