SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. – Crews will start clearing the North Cascades Highway at the end of this month, a little later than most years.

The Washington State Department of Transportation recently measured 10 feet of snow at the summit of Washington Pass.

That’s twice as deep as last year.

The scenic highway was closed for the winter on December 3.

The clearing work will begin March 31.

WSDOT estimates that the highway could be open in six weeks if the weather cooperates.
