    Crews remove debris Thursday from the shoulder of the westbound lane of U.S. Route 12 three miles east of White Pass. The highway has been closed since Oct. 1, when a portion of the eastbound lane and shoulder washed out.

YAKIMA -- The state Transportation Department says it's reopening one lane of Highway 12 near White Pass at 3 p.m. Friday.
Spokeswoman Summer Derry in Yakima said drivers will be directed through the washout area by portable lights and should expect periodic closures as work continues.
A contractor hopes to restore two lanes of travel before winter. A permanent repair will have to wait until spring.
After heavy weekend rain, a 500-foot section along the highway gave way Tuesday three miles east of the White Pass summit. A 45-mile stretch of highway between Packwood and Naches was closed.
