WSDOT: North Cascades Highway should reopen Thursday

The Washington State Department of Transportation  says it hopes to reopen the North Cascades Highway at noon Thursday.

Late last week, rain-caused mudslides in several areas closed a stretch of the highway, also known as Highway 20.

Transportation officials say crews are making good progress in clearing a half-dozen slides.

The highway is the northernmost route across the Cascade Mountains.

Avalanches typically close the highway for winter between late November and mid-December. It usually reopens by early May.
