NOTE: The trestle across the Columbia River at Beverly, connecting the western WA section of trail with the eastern WA section, is CLOSED.A detour using state highways is required. Bicycles are permitted on the I-90 bridge at Vantage, but for a section of the bridge, there is no shoulder, and where there is shoulder, it can be littered with debris. Traffic and strong cross-winds can contribute to the hazard.

no shoulder here!
View from the handlebars of a bicycle on the I-90 bridge as a semi swings around to pass on the left. Fortunately the semi was able to avoid the cyclist. Note debris along the narrow shoulder. A shuttle in a motorized vehicle is recommended!
