US 2-Stevens Pass from milepost 64 at the summit to milepost 99 at the west end of Leavenworth is closed due to the potential for snow-laden trees to fall onto the roadway.

The following is a news release from the Washington Department of Transportation.

LEAVENWORTH –US 2-Stevens Pass from milepost 64 at the summit to milepost 99 at the west end of Leavenworth is closed due to the potential for snow-laden trees to fall onto the roadway. 

US 2 was closed in both directions at 6:25 p.m. Saturday, due to fallen trees on the roadway and the potential that other trees may be threatened. The conditions will be evaluated Sunday morning to determine a reopening strategy. 

Motorists will be able to access the Stevens Pass Ski Area from the west, but through-traffic is advised to use I-90 Snoqualmie Pass and US 97 Blewett Pass. 

Less than 2 inches of snow fell through the closure zone on Saturday. The next front is forecast to bring as much as 3 to 4 inches of snow late Sunday morning through the evening. Updates will be provided as details become available. 

A Bothell couple was killed Friday by a falling tree in the area.
