The North Cascades National Park Visitor Center, near Newhalem on Highway 20 at milepost 120, will reopen this weekend. The center will then be open Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through May 4.
Beginning May 5, the Visitor Center will be open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Employees of Seattle City Light were able to fix the water system and enable the Visitor Center to reopen," said Park Superintendent Chip Jenkins.
The center was closed this month due to a break in the main water line that shut down all water resources to the center, including restroom facilities and fire protection capabilities. Repairs were hampered by several feet of snow.
Drivers can continue east from the visitor center and view 14 miles of the park’s mountain scenery to where Highway 20 remains closed for the winter at milepost 134.
