Historic highway closes for maintenance again Tuesday
Closures take place east of Vista House to Latourell Falls from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The East Historic Columbia River Highway will close again for maintenance on Tuesday, April 8 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The closure takes place on one mile of the road between Vista House and Latourell Falls in both directions. Flaggers will direct travelers on the historic highway for the next several weeks, according to road officials, as crews will be doing maintenance work in the ditches.
Vista House will remain open during the closure.
Travelers may detour around the closure using Interstate 84 to access the historic highway from I-84 eastbound at Exit 28.
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.
