With improving weather, more valley people will be using Snoqualmie Pass to get to Puget Sound area destinations, and westsiders to get to Eastern Washington sunshine. With a little planning, you can avoid too many delays.

After a long, wet winter and spring, crews are back on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass to start chipping away at the slopes high above the roadway with rock blasting.


The Washington State Department of Transportation and crews plan to close I-90 in both directions between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., Thursday, April 26, from Gold Creek (milepost 56) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61). This work is weather dependent and may change if weather conditions change.

The countdown for construction on I-90 between Easton and Cle Elum has started. For the next six weeks starting Monday, April 23, drivers need to plan for delays due to daytime single-lane closures in both directions Monday through Friday morning. Starting Friday, April 27, every weekend crews will open two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane at 9 a.m. on Fridays until 9 a.m. on Sundays. Crews will open two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
