DOT Reopening One Lane of HW 12 Near White Pass at 3 PM Friday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - The state Transportation Department says it's reopening one lane of Highway 12 near White Pass at 3 p.m. Friday.
    
Spokeswoman Summer Derry in Yakima says drivers will be directed through the washout area by portable lights and should expect periodic closures as work continues.
    
A contractor hopes to restore two lanes of travel before winter. A permanent repair will have to wait until spring.
    
After heavy weekend rain, a 500-foot section along the highway gave way Tuesday three miles east of the White Pass summit. A 45-mile stretch of highway between Packwood and Naches was closed.
