Speed Enforcement Camera To Be Placed On I90 At Snoqualmie Pass

You better slow down going over Snoqualmie Pass. As part of WSDOT’s Give ‘em A Brake program, which encourages drivers to slow down in work zones, an automated speed-enforcement camera will be placed in the construction zone on I90 over Snoqualmie Pass starting next Monday.


Travelers passing through the five-mile-long work zone of the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East will see signs warning “Speed limit photo enforced.” A vehicle parked near the highway will monitor speeds both eastbound and westbound and a camera will capture the rear license plates of speeding vehicles. Drivers caught speeding by automated enforcement in the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass work zone could face a $137 citation.
If a car’s license plate is photographed speeding through the work zone, the vehicle's registered owner receives the citation within 14 days. A citation is similar to a parking ticket in that it does not go on the permanent driving record.
