Nighttime Closures on Snoqualmie Pass

If you were getting a late- or early- start on a drive to the westside of the state sometime over the next two weeks, be aware that there will be some nighttime closures on Snoqualmie Pass.
For about an hour at a time, the eastbound lanes of I-90 will close multiple times throughout the night between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. Monday, June 15, through Friday, June 19; and again Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26. Eastbound drivers will be stopped near Gold Creek. Westbound drivers may experience minor delays for a single-lane closure during the same timeframes.

The closures are for crews to set girders for the new eastbound avalanche bridge as part of the project to build a wider, safer and more reliable stretch of I-90 from Hyak to Keechelus Dam.
