Mud slide blocks highway

The Department tells KXRO that they were on the scene of a mud slide that was partially blocking SR109 near MP 2.5 between the SR109 Spur and .

They say at one point both lanes were blocked by trees, but a Good Samaritan was able to chainsaw some of the debris and open one lane.

Police directed traffic through that lane before the arrival of crews.

The WSDOT says that the slide blocked the road from 4:12pm to 5:08pm.

WSDOT also says that the slide on US Highway 12 near Creek that was blocking traffic since Saturday was cleared just after 4:30pm yesterday.
