SPOKANE, Wash. — Highway 27 is closed from Garfield to Pullman on Monday morning due to poor road conditions, snow drifts and reduced visibility, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Multiple vehicles are also blocking in the area, WSDOT said. There is no estimate for when the highway will reopen.
According to a tweet by the WSDOT, crews began working on the highway near Tekoa on Sunday to clear snow left by the winter storm that passed through the state over the weekend.
"Crews have been working tirelessly to clear SR 27 near Tekoa. They even brought out the giant blower to help in the process. Please be patient they are dealing with deep snow drifts and more snow now falling," the tweet reads.
