Hope no one was planning to go to Leavenworth Wednesday

Tuesday, October 4, 2022

Instead of falling trees and fire next to Hwy 2, there is a planned road closure on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 for maintenance work.

A reminder that US 2 Tumwater Canyon west of Leavenworth is closed today for pre-winter maintenance from 8am to 3pm. 

The full closure is a safer way to expedite this important work heading into snowy weather. Thank you for your patience!
Or this version:

The Washington State Department of Transportation in partnership with the Bolt Creek Fire Incident Command will close US 2 from Grotto (milepost 44) to the ranger station (milepost 50) from 10am to 6pm on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

During this closure crews will remove additional trees that have been deemed hazardous and perform additional fire mitigation near the roadway. There is no detour available and travelers should plan to use alternate routes.

Road closure information is posted in the WSDOT real-time travel center and by @wsdot_traffic on Twitter and updates will be provided as available.

Both stevens and snoqualimie passes should have toll stations on the summit to help pay for the upkeep and to assist the counties on this eastern side of the state.

Love the idea of a toll for the summit
