ODOT has closed the Interstate 84 parking lot at Multnomah Falls as the U.S. Forest Service closes access to the entire falls area, because crowds haven’t complied with safe social distancing practices in place for the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The Historic Columbia River Highway remains open, but visitors should expect major delays Tuesday, March 24 at Horsetail Falls for tree work.

• Starting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, ODOT will periodically stop traffic in both directions while the Forest Service removes trees that may threaten the highway.

• Each closure will last 20 to 30 minutes, controlled by flaggers, and will continue until late afternoon.
