Highway 12 over White Pass closed by slide

A 40-mile section of Highway 12 over White Pass was closed by a mud and rock slide Saturday, and crews will need to inspect the area in the daylight Sunday before estimating when the roadway will reopen.
The closure runs from milepost 139 northeast of Packwood to milepost 183, near the Oak Creek Feed Station.
Travelers coming from the east side of the pass will be able to reach the White Pass Ski Area, according to WSDOT.
