SR-17 will be closed through Easter due to rock slide hazard

UPDATE (4/17): The highway will remain closed at least through Easter. The estimated time of reopening is still unknown. 

MESA, Wash. - State Route 17 will remain closed for the next several days between Highway 395 near Mesa and the junction of State Route 260, state transportation officials announced Tuesday. 

The highway closed early Tuesday morning due to a rock slide near Mesa that blocked the road. Now, the Washington State Department of Transportation says the rock face along the highway is unstable and needs to be stabilized.  

Traffic can use Highway 395 and State Route 260 as detours. 

An estimated time to open the roadway has not determined.
