State and county police head to Bickleton for traffic control


Washington State Patrol and the Klickitat County Sheriff's Office have been dispatched to Bickleton to help the tiny town deal with a massive traffic crunch.

Traffic is building up along alternate routes near US 97 in the wake of the closure of the highway between Toppenish and Goldendale, a result of the Satus Pass fire.

Traffic in Bickleton has been frozen as dozens of vehicles, including semis, have tried to thread their way through the town.
