One Lane Opens on Highway 12

Posted: Updated:

WHITE PASS, Wash - Highway 12 through White Pass has reopened after being closed for several days.

Crews were working to remove rocks the size of cars from the mountain side to prevent future rock slides.  A spokesperson for the Washington State Department of Transportation says the road reopened shortly after 10 o'clock Sunday night with one lane of alternating traffic.

It is unknow when both lanes will be opened.  Travelers should expect delays for the next month.  The highway had been closed since Thursday.
