Road Closures & Areas To Avoid

Several area state highways are closed due to drifting snow today and Whitman County is basically locked down. Here are the closures:

- Route 23- from Steptoe to the Lincoln County line
- Route 26- from Colfax west for 13 miles
- Route 271- from Rosalia to Oaksdale
- Route 27 from Pullman to Oaksdale
- Route 195 from Spangle to Stateline
- Shoqualmie Pass is closed due to avalanche danger. Both White and Stevens pass are still open at this time.
- SR 129 from Anatone to the Oregon State Line in Asotin County is closed for the same reasons.

And here are some areas to avoid this morning:

- A semi is stuck at First and Division
- Havana Street is closed just north of Sprague to Main due to a broken water main about 150 feet north of Sprague Avenue.
- Several slide offs have been reported on Interstate 90
