News Release
Expect traffic delays in the Gorge - 03/20/20

Expect big delays Tuesday on the Historic Columbia River Highway. ODOT will stop all traffic for more than 20 minutes at a time between 8 am to 4:30 pm at Horsetail Falls to remove trees threatening the road. Flaggers will control the closures. Crews will work to keep each closure to a minimum.

Drivers should plan for delays and heavy traffic in the area. The Historic Highway is seeing mid-summer traffic volumes this week with a number of people choosing to social distance in the great outdoors because of COVID-19. Parking lots and roadside parking overflowed this week with cars parking in ditches and blocking intersections. Travelers should plan ahead, expect delays and respect the posted traffic requirements.
