King County re-opens West Valley Highway South in Pacific, Algona

The King County Road Services department Thursday re-opened the section of West Valley Highway South in Pacific and Algona that had been closed ever since Feb. 17.

Algona and King County share the two-lane road, which runs into the heart of Pacific. Landslides frequently strike it, including the one on Feb. 17 that brought tons of dirt, mud and debris down from the west valley ridge.

West Valley Highway - a frequently-used arterial that relieves pressure on State route 167 – is now open for it's entire length.
