The state highway department abandoned this section in the early 1950s when the water-level route opened...  The portion to the Hood River County—Wasco County line became a county road, serving residences and several gravel pits. With closure of this portion of the old road in the mid-1950s, the right-of-way in Wasco County to HMP 73.1, including the Mosier Twin Tunnels (HMP 72) reverted to surrounding private landowners. (Hadlow, Landmark Nomination, 9)

In 1954, the OSHD abandoned the highway’s Mosier Twin Tunnel section, with the right-of-way
reverting to adjacent landowners. From 1987 onward, the Oregon Department of Transportation
(ODOT) has reacquired ownership of this entire section of the CRH from Hood River to Mosier. (Hadlow, Landmark Nomination, 15)
