Oregon Route 18 Business History

OR-18 Business previously existed as a part of OR-18 that went through Willamina and Sheridan from OR-18's beginnings in 1932 all the way until 1957, when a bypass was built both of those two cities. The former route was thus renamed OR-18 Business, and the highway was kept in the Oregon Highway System as the Willamina-Sheridan Highway #157 (previously it had been designated as a part of the Salmon River Highway #39).
