Delays Expected On Snoqualmie Pass Next Week

If you're headed across the state next week, get ready for some possible waits. To start, you may have to wait to use the restroom because the Indian John Rest Area will be closed to westbound travelers from 6 a.m. Monday, March 31 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 3. Crews will be upgrading and adding more lighting to the rest area.

Then, when you get to Snoqualmie Pass, a lane in each direction will be closed at night starting Monday, March 31 to Friday, April 4. Crews are preparing the project area for major closures that will reduce I-90 to a single lane in each direction for two weeks starting April 12. Drivers will also experience intermittent daytime rolling slowdowns.
