ODOT and project partners are breaking ground on a long awaited segment of the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail: the Mitchell Point Tunnel.
The tunnel was a highlight of the old Columbia River Highway, the famed scenic road that opened a century ago. But the tunnel was abandoned and eventually destroyed with construction of Interstate 84. Now, we are breaking ground on a new tunnel and Historic Highway State Trail segment. When construction is complete in 2023, there will be a 655-foot tunnel with five arched windows reminiscent of the original tunnel at Mitchell Point.
