The Historic Columbia River Highway just west of Lindsey Creek sleeps under a blanket of moss while cars whiz by on Interstate 84 just a few hundred feet away. The Oregon Department of Transportation recently submitted an application to the county to begin preliminary work this spring on restoring a section of the highway between Wyeth and Starvation Creek, which will be used as a hiking and biking trail.
