Washout on SR 206 closes highway to Mt. Spokane
SPOKANE –Water cascading through small creek tributaries blocked culverts and washed out a section of State Route 206 on Mt. Spokane late Sunday, May 18th
State Route 206 is now closed from just below the State Park gates to the summit.
In addition, high water in Deadman Creek has overflowed several of the County road approaches and private bridges that cross the stream.
WSDOT maintenance personnel are on site and engineering staff will be assessing the roadway later today. With temperatures reaching into the 80’s today, water will continue to flow and repairs will not be possible until the water recedes. There is no estimated time for reopening.
Residents who live above the closure will not be able to cross the damaged area on SR 206 or the adjacent approaches.
