Drifting snow closes SR 27 in Latah
LATAH, Wash. — The Washington State Department of Transportation closed a portion of State Route 27 Thursday morning in Latah due to drifting snow.
Video from Washington State Patrol Trooper Jeff Sevigney shows the dangerous conditions:
State Route 27 is closed just south of Fairfield. I drove through and made it down to Latah before turning around to close the highway. @WSDOT_East crews are working to clear the road but it may take some time.
