Mudslides close SR 20 North Cascades Highway through the weekend

(RAINY PASS)– Heavy rain caused more mud and rock slides over State Route 20 in several locations, indefinitely closing a 24-mile stretch between the North Cascades passes.  With heavier rains expected today, crews do not expect to reopen the highway until sometime next week.  The North Cascades Highway is closed between 10 miles west of Rainy Pass and 9 miles east of Washington Pass while the Washington State Department of Transportation assesses how long it will take to clear the slides.  Crews will likely wait until the rain subsides to begin cleanup efforts, since more debris may come down as the day progresses.
