UPDATE: SR 261 near Washtucna reopened, 2 highways still closed
SR 261 between Washtucna and Ritzville has reopened. Lane restrictions on SR 26 have also been lifted.
SR 21 and SR 27 are still closed due to blowing and drifting snow in the area.
Crews had to stop efforts on SR 27 this weekend because of the dangerous environment.
Conditions were treacherous this weekend along SR 27. Winds have been the biggest factor in keeping the roadway clear. Crews will be out once again today trying to open up SR 27 and SR 21, as long as Mother Nature cooperates. pic.twitter.com/cdXuODaQJe
