Historic highway section reopens

Thursday, December 6, 2018

A six-mile section of the Historic Columbia River Highway reopened last weekend.

The stretch of road between Bridal Veil and Ainsworth State Park has been closed since Sept. 4, 2017, at the start of the Eagle Creek Fire.

The recovery included removing 9,000 trees in danger of falling on the road and installation of more than 3,000 feet of protective fencing.
