Pass Conditions Proving Difficult for Drivers

WSDOT Facebook

Downed trees from an ice storm, snow on the roadway from avalanches and lots of snow falling are part of the situation that kept Snoqualmie Pass closed for hours on Sunday and Monday.

Megan McFadden with the state Department of Transportation says those who do not have to travel early this week should stay where they are.

“We want drivers to check the [WSDOT] website to know the conditions and if you don’t have to travel hold tight until later in the week”

Heavy snow impacted the pass early Sunday when chains were required, and the snow kept falling all day, then an ice storm hit and that caused trees to fall on the roadway.

McFadden suggests drivers take White or Stevens Pass to the west side of the state or avoid the passes and travel Highway 97 to I-84 to the Columbia Gorge.
