DOT Working Hard To Clear Slide From Highway 410
Snow, mud, rocks and trees. That’s what Washington State Department of Transportation (DOT) crews are trying to clear this week to reopen Highway 410. The DOT’s Mike Westbay says the slide is six to 10 feet deep and 150 yards long near Bumping River Road. He says crews are now trying to clear a pathway to get more crews to the summit so they can continue clearing snow. The goal is to have the slide cleared, and Highway 410 reopened, by Memorial Day.
Another slide happened in the same spot in April, 2011.
