The Hood River/White Salmon Interstate Bridge opened on Dec. 9, 1924, when Calvin Coolidge was president. Within a year, 79,545 cars, 67 stage coaches, 3,920 livestock and 3,764 bicycles had crossed the river. In 1939, the lift span was installed after construction of Bonneville Dam. World War II began that year in Europe.

The work will be guided by a Project Advisory Committee, and include four public meetings to obtain community input.
