U.S. Highway 2 storm-damaged bridge

A storm-damaged bridge that closed down a stretch of U.S. Highway 2 west of Stevens Pass can be reopened with at least one-lane by Wednesday. State officials initially closed the road because of a mudslide Tuesday afternoon and then kept a 15-mile stretch of the highway closed after finding that a swollen, storm-fed creek had undermined the bridge foundation. Highway 2 is a major east-west route carrying about 5,000 vehicles a day over the mountains. Crews are expected to install a temporary support system underneath the bridge’s southeast corner and temporary traffic lights will be installed at either end of the bridge.
