State Transportation Department crews working to open Cascade mountain passes

The Associated Press

Washington Transportation Department crews are hard at work trying to re-open the Cascade mountain passes that are closed by winter snow and avalanche danger.

Like last year, this was another winter of above-average snow in the Cascades

The department says crews hope to reopen the Cayuse Pass on Tuesday, the North Cascades Highway on May 10, and Chinook Pass by May 25 for Memorial Day weekend.
