State transportation officials will reopen one lane of U.S. Highway 12 near the White Pass summit Friday afternoon following a closure initiated Tuesday after a washout along a steep embankment adjacent to the roadway.

An automated signal will direct alternating traffic through a quarter-mile area near the washout, just east of White Pass, when the highway reopens, according to WSDOT. Commercial vehicles will not be allowed through when the single-lane opens.
