Stretch of North Cascades Highway to close due to weather conditions, WSDOT says

The Washington State Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that a stretch of the North Cascades Highway will be closed until at least early next week due to weather conditions.

WSDOT tweeted that State Route 20 will close starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, from milepost 134 to 171, as heavy snow and rain create “a recipe for avalanche.”

WSDOT said reopening of the highway will be reassessed early next week.
