When a plan was proposed to connect two sections of Highway 30 by constructing one mile of highway from Tanner Creek to Moffet Creek, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) took on both the engineering design and public relations challenges in coordinating the involvement of multiple public agencies. The plan included a bike and pedestrian pathway that will eventually become part of a l00-mile trail extending from Portland to The Dalles. Since the scenic corridor encompasses forests, creeks, waterfalls, and shoreline visible from both the Washington and Oregon sides of the Columbia River, ODOT engineering design staff had to coordinate input from numerous agencies- Washington Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Forest Service, and local county and city governments - while addressing the environmental and aesthetic requirements of the Historic Columbia River Highway Advisory Committee (HCRHAC) and the Columbia Gorge Commission.
