040c Twin Tunnels to Mosier

Deer Off HCRH - HCRH Van Tour
Oregon. June 21, 2014.

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)

Oregon 35-to-Mosier Historic Roadway Features Restored
Construction is complete on this project to repair all the historic roadway features and pavement on the Historic Columbia River Highway between Hood River and Mosier. The work included repairing and rebuilding of the rock walls and guardrails. Due to lack of funds, the area between Oregon 35 and the West Trailhead will not receive a pavement overlay.
