(RAINY PASS)- The gates opened and the barricades came down on State Route 20 at noon yesterday, restoring travel over the North Cascades Highway. The highway has been closed since 2 a.m. last Friday due to mudslides. Before the DOT could reopen SR 20, crews repaired pavement and guardrail and completed drainage and ditch-clearing work. Drivers can expect some occasional short delays the next several days while crews continue working on drainage and the slopes on both sides of the highway.
The North Cascades Pass is now open
