Mount Baker Highway likely to be closed all weekend
A Mount Baker Highway closure is likely to continue into the weekend because heavy snow has snapped more than 100 trees onto the roadway, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
The road is closed east of Maple Falls, about 10 miles west of the Mount Baker Ski Area, which is also closed. Crews tried cleaning up the road Wednesday, but had to stop when more wind, rain and snow made cleanup too hazardous.
When weather conditions improve, crews will get back to work, a WSDOT release said.
