North Cascades Highway closed
Highway 20, the North Cascades Highway, is closed for the winter season. Washington State Department of Transportation crews closed the highway Friday because of avalanche risk — a week or so earlier than typical.
“We know this route is popular for access to businesses, relatives and outdoor adventures,” WSDOT Twisp maintenance supervisor Don Becker said. “Our crews work hard to keep it open through the Thanksgiving weekend, but this year it isn’t possible due to the amount of snow in the forecast.”
The road already was temporarily closed twice. Crews have been plowing since early October.
