More Evening Closures Planned This Week on Snoqualmie Pass
The Washington State Department of Transportation is working closely with the Department of Natural Resources on the fire precaution level affecting construction on I-90 east of Snoqualmie Pass.
Although crews may not blast this week, they are still planning evening closures to remove loose rock from the slopes above the highway.
WSDOT and construction crews are closing the pass Monday, Sept. 24, through Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. each night, from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61). Increased construction activity, lane closures and rolling slowdowns may add extra travel time Monday through Friday in both directions, during daylight hours.
Just a reminder that the automated speed-enforcement cameras is monitoring speeds through the 5-mile work zone on I-90. Drivers traveling over the posted speed of 60 mph could be issued a $137 fine.
