As rain helps reduce fire risk in the Cascades, Chinook Pass is on the verge of reopening, the Department of Transportation announced Wednesday.

In a tweet, the agency said state Route 410 over Chinook Pass “will reopen tentatively at noon tomorrow” but only to through traffic. Fire crews have finished working along the highway, the agency said. Portions of Route 410 have been closed since August as crews fight fires in the area.
