DETROIT, Ore. – Electric vehicle charging stations are showing up in some unexpected places here in the Northwest – even the great outdoors.

We’re talking about the West Coast Electric Highway, a fast-growing network of charging stations along Interstate 5 and smaller roadways (like Highway 22 in Detroit, Oregon). That’s where we ran across one while our travel/outdoors reporter was covering the town’s annual fishing derby at Detroit Lake.

Even though right now most vehicles on the road are running on gas, there is a push to build an infrastructure to support what many believe is the future.

The effort here on the West Coast began a few years back when the governors of Oregon, California and Washington signed an agreement to turn I-5 into an electric highway (using federal stimulus dollars).
