Snoqualmie Pass To Close For Blasting Tonight

The Washington State Department of Transportation has another long blast closure scheduled this week over Snoqualmie Pass. Crews are blasting tonight in an area near the snowshed that could bring down a substantial amount of debris onto Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass.
As a result, the pass will be closed at 7:30 p.m. tonight from Hyak to the Price Creek Sno-Park. A reopening time depends on the amount of time it takes to remove debris and assess possible damage to the roadway.

Closurses are also scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, but the time for those are from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
