SR 410 in Enumclaw to remain closed for several weeks

Rocks and wires down on SR 410 making it unsafe for travel

SR 410 in and east of Enumclaw will remain closed for several weeks between mileposts 29 and 43 due to hot spots from a wildfire and trees and rocks falling from the burnt slope above the highway, according to a Sept. 14 Washington State Department of Transportation travel update.

The conditions make it unsafe for travel.

The wildfire burned and weakened trees and roots, loosening rock and debris from the hillside. The trees and large rocks continue to fall to the roadway below, creating unsafe travel conditions for the 14-mile section of SR 410.

Tree removal and rock scaling work will continue before damaged guardrail can be replaced and the road can reopen.
