Snoqualmie Pass Closures

One-hour closures are planned for rock blasting four nights this week on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass and drivers should plan for added travel time.

The Washington State Department of Transportation is closing the pass 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27, through Thursday, Aug. 30, from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61).

You should also plan for added travel time Monday through Thursday due to increased construction activity and rolling slowdowns. Due to heavy traffic volumes over Labor Day weekend, there will not be construction-related lane closures on Monday, Sept. 3.
