Chinook Pass closed due to weather

Traffic on two passes was shut down today due to heavy snowfall and high winds, according to the state Department of Transportation.

Traffic on Chinook Pass on Highway 410 is temporarily closed from milepost 74.5 near Morse Creek to milepost 57.5 near Crystal Mountain Boulevard, according to the DOT. The pass will remain closed at least through Sunday, according to a DOT news release.

“Heavy snowfall and strong winds are creating drifting snow and very poor visibility,” the DOT said.

Highway 123, Cayuse Pass, also is temporarily closed from the junction of Highways 410 and 123 to milepost 5.4 near Stevens Canyon Road.
