PEND OREILLE COUNTY, Wash. -

Update: Washington State Patrol reported Tuesday that Highway 20 has reopened in Pend Oreille County. The highway was closed for most of Monday because of flooding. 

Trooper Jeff Sevigney tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the road had reopened but that motorcycles traveling through the area of MP411 should use caution.

Previous coverage:

Fast-moving waters have now closed a major road in Pend Oreille County for the time being.

Flooding has forced the Washington Department of Transportation to close Highway 20 just north of Cusick.

Crews say they are also monitoring the side of the road where there is some erosion occurring.

Both lanes of Highway 20 are closed while crews work to clear debris and monitor the road condition as well.

If you are driving and you see water begin to pool over the road; turn around, don’t drown, you never know how deep or if the road is out beneath it.
