As of 5:15 p.m., Monday, Jan. 6, US 2 Stevens Pass remained closed between the summit of Steven Pass (milepost 66) to Coles Corner (milepost 84) due to winter conditions including heavy snow knocking down trees onto the roadway. There is not yet an estimate about when they can reopen the highway to traffic.
