MAZAMA — Due to heavy snow and high winds on Sunday, the state Department of Transportation on Sunday closed the North Cascades Highway at 3 p.m., at least temporarily.

Avalanche control specialists will travel to Washington Pass today to find out how much snow came down, and see whether avalanches are covering the roadway, said Transportation spokesman Jeff Adamson. “If it’s reasonably re-openable, they’ll do it,” he said.
