DOT Reopens Chinook Pass

YAKIMA, Wa -  Chinook Pass is open again after mudslides forced the DOT to close it. One lane is open now on state route 410 to allow traffic through.  Delays are about 15 minutes. 

A DOT official tells KNDO that both lanes should be back open some time tonight (Wednesday).

The DOT says three mudslides happened around five o'clock last night (Tuesday). They were all about five or ten miles away from Bumping River Road. Heavy rain is to blame.
