      Crews hope to open North Cascades Highway Thursday

      DIABLO, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Transportation Department says it hopes to reopen the North Cascades Highway at noon on Thursday.

      Late last week, rain-caused mudslides in several locations closed a stretch of the highway, also known as State Highway 20.

      Transportation officials say crews are making good progress in clearing a half dozen slides.

      The highway is the northernmost route across Washington's Cascade Mountains.

      Avalanches typically close the highway for winter between late November and mid-December. It usually reopens by early May.
