State Route 530 bypass near Oso opens to grateful, grieving communities
OSO, Wash. -- The long trip around the mudslide zone is finally over for people in Darrington, Oso, and Arlington. A bypass is now open alongside SR 530, cutting commute times to a fraction of what it used to be after the March 22 mudslide cut the highway between Arlington and Darrington and forced people to find other ways to get from one city to another.
