Avalanche closes Highway 20 near Santiam Pass

 

January 3, 2017



An avalanche closed U.S. 20 about two miles west of Santiam Pass just before 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Crews hope to have at least one lane open to traffic soon.

Strong winds that are blowing and drifting snow are causing very difficult and deteriorating driving conditions going over the pass. Motorists are advised to avoid traveling over the pass or use an alternative route.
