Does anyone know if the Cascade River Road is currently driveable to the Monogram Lake trailhead?

Edit:  Here's the answer to my own question, when I drove the road on 3/3.
Road is plowed for 4.5 miles from the bridge at Marblemount.  I drove 2 miles further, to the forest service sign, which is 0.5 miles from the trailhead.  Some snow on the road, but partially melted and with driveable tire ruts.  There was also an SUV parked at the trailhead, but the packed snow on the road is more icy for that last half mile, so I' didn't try it.  There were also tire ruts going further up the road, but I don't know how far they got.

There is probably not as much snow in that area as in areas farther south in the Cascades. But, I think the road is only plowed to the community about 4 miles in. I would call the Chevron in Marblemount or the Shell? station to a ask how much snow is on the ground there. Expect an additional several inches to a foot at the ML TH.
