Take A Quick Survey On Snoqualmie Pass Visibility

Do you drive over Snoqualmie Pass? Then the Washington State Department of Transportation wants to hear from you.They'd like you to take an online survey on visibility of striping on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass. Responses from the survey will provide feedback about conditions before construction starts this summer on a pilot project aimed at improving visibility and safety on I-90. 
The pilot project is the first in the state to install lane markings with solar-powered light-emitting diodes. The new markings are aimed at improving visibility of the lane lines despite harsh weather conditions on the pass. If successful, the solar-powered LED markers could possibly be used in other locations along the corridor.
Please take the survey here.
