Highway 20 to remain closed indefinitely

On March 26, Secretary of Transportation Roger Millar suspended most maintenance work due to COVID-19 safety concerns, and implemented an “Essential Maintenance” approach to further comply with the state’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order to safeguard public health. Under these guidelines, Washington DOT has paused most maintenance across the state, including work to reopen the North Cascades Highway between Early Winters (MP 177) and Newhalem (MP 120).

A date to return to normal maintenance work has not yet been determined. Until the foreseeable future, anyone wanting to travel to/from the Puget Sound area from The Woodlands will need to plan on making the drive via Stevens or Snoqualmie Passes.
