This interstate highway follows the Columbia River and is located across the river from State Highway 14 in Washington along the old Oregon Trail. It has become a replacement for the Historic Columbia River Highway (or Highway Route 30) in Oregon. It operates in two non-contiguous sections, the first of which runs from Portland, Oregon to the I-80 junction at Echo, Utah. The section running through Oregon state is also known as the “Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway”. In Portland, Oregon it is also known as the “Banfield Freeway” or “the Banfield”.
