What's the projected opening for the North Cascades Highway?
The North Cascades Highway has been closed since November 21st of last year. Crews began working to re-open it March 26th. Although this season, 100 more inches of snow fell than last season, crews were able to start work clearing all that snow several weeks earlier. The Washington state Department of Transportation expects it will be open by the weekend of May 12th and 13th...just in time for '49'er Days' in Winthrop.
