Snoqualmie Pass Closure

If you're headed to the west side of the state toward the end of the week, be aware that crews will be blasting again on the pass.  I-90 will be closed both directions from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61) from 7-8 p.m., Thursday, May 10. This work is weather dependent and is subject to change.

Rock blasting is part of the $551 million I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East – Hyak to Keechelus Dam project to widen a five-mile stretch of the highway from four to six lanes and improve reliability and safety. This multi-year project is funded by the 2005 gas tax and is scheduled to be complete in 2017.
