CHELAN, Wash. —

The Washington Transportation Department says a two-mile section of U.S. Highway 97a about nine miles south of Chelan has been closed by a mudslide.

The agency says the flow of water, mud and debris blocked the highway Wednesday evening. One lane was reopened temporarily but the department then decided to close the highway overnight and resume cleanup operations in daylight.

Detours are available.
