Highway 167 at Highway 410 in Puyallup is still closed, and crews hope to have the roadway open shortly. But it is unclear what “shortly” will be.


Crews closed down the highway at milepost seven because the road was too icy for anyone to drive on.


The state Department of Transportation sent sand trucks, and spokeswoman Karri Workman said they are sending more trucks to the area to try and clear it up so traffic can resume. But right now there is a massive backup with no movement.
