WSDOT will start road clearing on Tuesday the 26th

WSDOT would like to remind you if your snowmobile is parked at Early Winters where the winter highway closure barricades are – please remove it by Monday the 25th of March.


DOT crews will start clearing on the next day (Tuesday, March 26) to reopen the 7 miles of Highway up to the Silver Star Gate so you can’t leave them on or along the roadway. The lower elevation snow is beginning to melt and we’ll need that staging area for our equipment when the spring reopening work starts in a month or so.  In the interim, it also improves access for non motorized recreation as well as a few property owners.
