White Pass Road Repair Due by Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) - The state Transportation Department says Highway 12 over White Pass should be fully reopened to two lanes by Thanksgiving.

Traffic has been restricted to one lane since an Oct. 1 washout damaged the highway on the east side of the pass.

Crews will close White Pass from the SR 410/US 12 junction west of Naches to the US 12/SR 123 junction east of Packwood from 7 p.m. to midnight each night, Monday through Wednesday, November 4 to 6.

US 12 will be open to local traffic, but drivers will not be able to cross the washed out area located three miles east of White Pass. Drivers are encouraged to leave earlier, later or use alternate routes.

Businesses along the US 12 corridor are open.
