People planning to drive along state Route 7 to reach Mount Rainier National Park and other outdoor recreation opportunities in the Elbe-Ashford area should be aware of a detour.

The Washington State Department of Transportation is closing a 5-mile stretch of highway between La Grande and Alder.

The work is being done to install permanent debris barriers in a location where a slide closed the road in April 2012.

Reporter Stacia Glenn has the details here.
