News: Stevens Pass reopens following cautionary closure

STEVENS PASS, WA – The Washington State Department of Transportation reopened Stevens Pass this morning following a cautionary overnight closure.

KIRO 7 reports that heavy snowfall led WDOT to close the pass beginning Tuesday afternoon so they could perform avalanche abatement procedures. Westbound traffic was stopped from Leavenworth on, while eastbound traffic was halted from about six miles east Skykomish.

The pass was reopened at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, as the department beat its noon estimate by several hours. Chains are still required for vehicles traversing US 2 in the area, and authorities recommend that motorists exercise caution.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by another motorist’s dangerous behavior, you could be owed significant financial compensation.
