SR 410 to Greenwater still open to local traffic only

This is day two of the highway closure.

Feb. 7 12:30 p.m. update:

WSDOT has reported that SR 410 is closed to all traffic after a third mudslide came down on the highway.

Feb. 7 update:

WSDOT continues to report that SR 410 is closed to all but local access from Mud Mountain Road to just east of Greenwater. Their latest update was made at 6:25 a.m. on Feb. 7.

There have been reports of WSDOT workers asking drivers for ID to prove they are local.

Original Feb. 6 post:

A mudslide this morning has cut off Greenwater from the rest of the Plateau.

The Washington State Department of Transportation reported at 7:22 a.m. on Feb. 6 that state Route 410 is closed just east of Mud Mountain Road (milepost 29) to just east of Greenwater (milepost 49).

This has resulted in some Enumclaw School District students needing to stay home instead of heading to school.

Additionally, The United States Postal Service has announced that mail delivery to more than 400 Enumclaw residents will be delayed.

Local access is possible, according to Greenwater Fire Chief Paul Sowers in a Facebook post, but “if you do not need to travel, don’t,” he wrote. “If you must, exercise extreme caution.”

This is an ongoing story, and will be updated as information comes in.
