(SKYKOMISH, WA) -- The flooding of the Skykomish River January 17th in the upper Sky Valley left some folks in and around Skykomish without a back way to get into and out of town it appears.

A section of the Old Cascade Highway, reached off U.S. Highway 2 by taking the Money Creek exit between Baring and Skykomish, washed out when thee Miller River, a tributary of the Skykomish, went over its banks during the flooding earlier this week.

Prior to the building of U.S. Highway 2, the Old Cascade Highway was the main road into Skykomish.

As you can see in the picture by Mt. Index Riversites resident Thom Boullion, the roadway is a mess and may take some time to repair. A sign nearby says the roadway is closed.

About 250 people live in Skykomish with another 150 or so living around the outskirts of town.

The road washout is about 1.5 miles up the Old Cascade Highway and is often used as a back route into and out of Skykomish.
