due to the fire in the columbia river gorge any suggestions on travel route from clarkston wa to lincoln city oregon?
The route you take will all depend on I-84 and when you're going. Best bet may be to watch the Oregon DOT web page, www.tripcheck.com for updates and alternate routes. That page shows road construction, alerts and other delays as well as things like rest areas.
It's a long drive no matter what! Right now, with taking Washington SR14 instead of 84 along the Gorge, it's an 8-hr drive at minimum. Any variations from that will take longer, of course....plus on any 2-lane roads you can count on road construction delays this time of year.
