Back-to-back storms temporarily close SR 20 for the weekend, Nov. 13-16


WINTHROP – The North Cascades Highway is closed as of Friday evening due to heavy snowfall and risk of avalanche danger.

The closure is in place between milepost 134, east of Diablo Lake, and milepost 171 at Silver Star Gate. Crews will assess conditions on Monday and at that time may determine to close the North Cascades Highway for the season. The highway typically closes this time of year due to high avalanche danger and hazardous road conditions, reopening sometime in the spring.

Updates will be shared on the travel alert page, and on Twitter @WSDOT_East.
