Exit 7 - Bella Vista Avenue
Didn't there used to be an Exit 7 to Bella Vista Avenue? My parents think so, because sometimes they'd use SR-14 when they used to travel from home to my aunt's house on 2108 SE 139th Ave. in Vancouver, WA. All I know is that it's not there anymore if it once existed, leading me to believe the exit was closed off permanently by about 1986 due to an accident along this exit. With the closure of Exit 7, my parents then used I-205N to Exit 28C (Mill Plain Blvd.).
If anyone who knows more about SR-14 can find out whether Exit 7 existed, and when it closed, please add that to this article.
Many highways have names, some very recent. Is the Lewis and Clark highway name one that is from the auto trails period (1900-1926), or is it a more recent name? I see that on old auto trails maps, this highway was Washington Route 8, and from Vancouver to Lyle it was part of the Evergreen National Highway auto trail (Victoria, BC to El Paso, TX). If the name is relatively modern, it should probably be removed from the list of auto trails. The only state highway from the period with the Lewis and Clark name (but not an association "auto trail") that I have found was old Idaho Route 19, now U.S. Route 12. — ★Parsa ☞ talk 04:04, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
