The final portion US 2 has reopened after days of heavy snowfall.

SKYKOMISH, Wash. — The final portion of US 2 near Skykomish has fully reopened to the public. 

The stretch of US 2 between Skykomish and the Stevens Pass summit was closed for several days due to heavy snow and downed trees. 

WSDOT crews worked all day to plow snow, clear debris and fix power lines. 

US 2 over Stevens Pass could close again if conditions in the area worsen, so always check before you hit the road.

Heavy snowfall this week forced US 2 to close after several trees fell, bringing power lines down with them. The closure trapped several residents living in the mountain towns between Gold Bar and Skykomish. 

People were left stranded for several days without power. On Wednesday, a convoy of volunteers from neighboring communities brought some much-needed supplies like food, water, and generators for those residents. 

State and local crews continue to work to clear snow and downed trees from the roadway. 

If you're traveling to or from Skykomish on US 2 continue to use caution and obey any traffic signs.
