WSDOT opens 1 lane of Highway 12 across White Pass

YAKIMA— The Washington state Transportation Department says it has reopened a single lane of Highway 12 across White Pass after a 45-mile stretch of highway was closed by a washout.

The department says flaggers and a traffic signal will direct drivers through the single-lane paved detour that opened Friday afternoon.

A contractor hopes to restore two lanes of travel before winter. A permanent repair will have to wait until spring.

After heavy rain last weekend, a 500-foot section along the highway gave way Tuesday three miles east of the White Pass summit. The closure affected the highway between Packwood and Naches.
