The National Park Service and other local partners plans to renovate a "dismal" area near the north end of the Astoria Bridge beginning in 2015.

Estimated to cost about $1.3 million, the project aims to make the aging cinderblock building and grounds beside the Columbia into a more suitable gateway for prime Lewis and Clark historical sites along the river’s north shore. Collectively, these sites are being called the Columbia Pacific Passage, and extend from the Pacific-Wahkiakum county line to Cape Disappointment.
