US 2 closed from Stevens Pass to Leavenworth
December 22, 2012 · 11:24 PM
US 2-Stevens Pass from milepost 64 at the summit to milepost 99 at the west end of Leavenworth is closed due to the potential for snow-laden trees to fall onto the roadway.
US 2 was closed in both directions at 6:25 p.m., due to fallen trees on the roadway and the potential that other trees may be threatened. The conditions will be evaluated Sunday morning to determine a reopening strategy.
Motorists will be able to access the Stevens Pass Ski Area from the west, but through-traffic is advised to use I-90 Snoqualmie Pass and US 97 Blewett Pass.
Less than 2” of snow fell through the closure zone on Saturday. The next front is forecast to bring as much as 3” to 4” of snow late Sunday morning through the evening. Updates will be provided as details become available.
