    Doing The Loop On Old Us99

    I know there is a similar loop on the Norbeck Scenic Byway in the Black Hills of South Dakota (http://www.byways.org/explore/byways/2459/). More are described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigtail_bridge. Of course, being from Oregon, the Steinman crossing is my favorite. Enjoy the trip! Patrick S.
  2. Greetings fellow highway enthusiasts! As other posts have mentioned (Pacific Highway/US 99), a process is currently underway to determine the future of the Interstate Bridge over the Columbia River. The Columbia River Crossing Task Force (www.columbiarivercrossing.org) has been set up and is currently discussing which alternatives to consider for further study in a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Alternatives can be viewed on the Task Force website listed above. If alternatives that retain the historic bridges (# 3 - 7) are not selected for further consideration, the Interstate Bridge is a goner. A great article about the Interstate Bridge appeared in the Winter 2003 issue (Vol 1, #3) of American Road, and more historical information is available on various websites. The time to act is now! I've prepared a template letter that you can add your name to and send in to the Task Force. (The letter is attached.) The next task force meeting is WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, so if we send in many letters the rest of this week and weekend, we may be able to have an influence by this upcoming meeting. Send comments to feedback@columbiarivercrossing.org or check the website for instructions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Becky Repp. Please help save this important historic resource of Highway 99 and the Pacific Highway!
