State Highway 153 remains closed because of slides

— State Highway 153 remains closed from Milepost 22 to about Milepost 28 at Benson Creek because of mudslides and rocks over the roadway.

The slides occurred a week ago when a storm dumped rain on areas burned in the Carlton Complex fire.

There’s no estimated time for reopening, the state Department of Transportation said.

A detour is available on Twisp-Carlton Road.
