Detour around Highway 410 landslide open to all

An emergency Nile Loop Road route around the landslide closure on Highway 410 near Naches, Yakima County, is open to all traffic, and a "residents only" restriction has been lifted.

An emergency Nile Loop Road route around the landslide closure on Highway 410 near Naches, Yakima County, is open to all traffic, and a "residents only" restriction has been lifted.

Meanwhile, the state transportation department is working on a new route through the Nile Valley and around the massive landslide that covered the highway near Yakima on Oct. 11.

The emergency route, which detours around a four-mile section between mileposts 104 and 108, is a rough, gravel-surfaced road. State officials said the road could be closed at any time for safety if landslide activity or an increase in river flows is detected.

WSDOT says the most reliable access to restaurants, cabins and stores along the Highway 410 corridor is from the west over Chinook Pass, which will remain open until heavy snow creates avalanche danger.

Motorists using the emergency route could experience long delays due to construction work. No stopping or parking will be permitted on the emergency route.
