With the heavy rainfall that came through areas of North Central Washington this afternoon, it caused a rock and mudslide to block US 97 just six miles north of Chelan between milepost 220 and milepost 221.
If you are wanting to travel on US 97 north of Chelan, there is a detour available using US 97A at Antoine Creek Road and Apple Acres Road. Crews are on the scene working to clear the roadway. We do not have an estimated time for reopening this section of US 97 at this time.
There is also a report of rock and mudslide on McNeil Canyon Road in Douglas County. Crews are on the scene and expect to have the road re-opened just after 7 p.m.
