North Cascades Highway closed for season

With heavy snow expected to continue in the mountains, WSDOT officials Monday said the North Cascades Highway will stay closed for the winter.

Snow was falling throughout the Cascades Monday. Traction tires were required on Snoqualmie Pass and advised on Stevens Pass at mid-morning. 

The North Cascades Highway was closed by heavy snow last week, and officials had said they would decide Monday whether to try to reopen the route for Thanksgiving weekend.
