Slow Going Over Snoqualmie This Week

Oops, meant to post this last week and ran out of time. If you're driving over Snoqualmie Pass this week, you could be looking at delays of up to two hours as crews close one lane of eastbound I-90. The lane will be closed for six days in preparation for opening a brand new section of highwa!

The lane closed yesterday and won't open until this Friday.

Washington State Department of Transportation officials say the easiest time to get over the Pass during the closures is before noon or after 9 p.m.

A number of traveler information tools are available to help drivers plan ahead:

• The Snoqualmie Mountain Pass Web page has a traffic-flow map for real-time travel information.

• Tune into the Highway Advisory Radio at 1610 AM and 530 AM.

• Follow WSDOT on Twitter @SnoqualmiePass

• Call the I-90 construction hotline at 888-535-0738 or 511.
