WSDOT is Holding Public Meetings to Get Your Input

wsdot.gov

The Washington State Department of Transportation is considering a change to the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project and we’re hosting informal public hearings to educate the public about the proposal and seek their input.

An important project objective is reducing road closures due to avalanches. Originally, WSDOT was going to accomplish this objective by replacing the existing snowshed with a new, larger snowshed. WSDOT is now considering replacing the existing snowshed with two avalanche bridges instead.

 

WSDOT recently released a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement that evaluates the proposed change, and we’re presenting the findings at public hearings in Bellevue, Snoqualmie Pass and Ellensburg. Please join us at any time during the events to learn more and tell us what you think.
