Expect Traffic Delays Across Snoqualmie Pass
Some delays if you are driving across Snoqualmie pass this week. Rock blasting on Snoqualmie Pass is going to take place later at night. Drivers need to prepare for an hour of added travel time for blasting, but also additional time for construction east of the pass on Interstate 90. The Washington State Department of Transportation will close I-90 in both directions from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61) from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 22, and Wednesday, May 23. This work is weather dependent and is subject to change.
There is only one more week left of daytime lane restrictions near Easton. Drivers need to plan for delays on I-90 Monday through Thursday, due to daytime single-lane closures in both directions. To improve weekend traffic flow, crews will open one extra lane to eastbound traffic on Fridays and Saturdays and westbound traffic on Sundays.
