The Historic Columbia River Highway (U.S. Route 30) turned 100-years-old
Yesterday, June 7th. The Highway runs through the Columbia River Gorge 
from Troutdale to The Dalles. It was built in segments and dedicated in 1916
as the nation’s first scenic highway. It functioned as the main road into the
city of Portland from the east until opening of I-84 in the 1960s. The Gorge
highway remains one of America’s most iconic roads.
