This is a tunnel that has been restored after a collapse. It is locate on the Historic Columbia River Highway on the south side of the Columbia River Gorge. Before I-84 was constructed, this was the only east/west route on the Oregon side of the River. After the freeway was built, the old highway was kept open until the tunnel collapsed. At that point the tunnels (there are actually 3) were filled in and "permanently" closed. The highway to the west leading into Troutdale, was and still is maintained.

About ten years ago, it was decided to restore the tunnels and open about a 9-mile section with the tunnels in the middle as a pedestrian hiking path. This is one of the tunnels.
