Located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area
40 miles east of Portland and Vancouver,
Bonneville Lock and Dam forms a connecting link
between the two states.
Built and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
it was the first federal lock and dam on the Columbia River.
Construction began in 1933 and the lock and dam was
dedicated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on September 28, 1937.
Come tour the dam and find out how it runs.
