The Madison Avenue Task Force was created in 1973 by Oregon State President Robert MacVicar and Corvallis Mayor Don Walker with the goal of connecting campus to downtown. The Gateway Walk is a physical representation of the 150 years of collaboration between Oregon State and the people of Corvallis. 

The Gateway Walk reflects the task force's determination to accomplish great things. Oregon State and Corvallis look forward to another 150 years of collaboration that will enhance the quality of life and prosperity of our community.
