Historic highway closed for maintenance Thursday and Monday


Closures take place east of Vista House to Latourell Falls from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Road crews will close one mile of the East Historic Columbia River Highway between Vista House and Latourell Falls in both directions on Thursday, April 3 and Monday, April 8.

Closures will take place most of the day from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. as crews will be doing maintenance work in the ditches.

Vista House will remain open during the closures.

Travelers may detour around the closure using Interstate 84 to access the Historic Highway from I-84 eastbound at Exit 28.

Access west of the Vista House will remain open.

Due to the amount of moving equipment, officials at the Oregon Department of Transportation said bicyclists cannot safely travel through the work zone and should seek an alternate route.

The East Historic Columbia River Highway will be open to all users Thursday evening through Monday morning until 7:30 a.m.
