Rock Blasting on I-90 east of Snoqualmie Pass

Road Closure

The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close I-90 in both directions starting at a new time next week from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, May 13 through Thursday, May 16.

The pass was previously closed from 7 to 8 p.m. Crews typically blast an hour before sunset and the longer days allow later closure times.

Earlier this week, blasting closed I-90 for just over two hours. The closures next week are not expected to extend beyond one hour, although that could change depending on the amount of debris brought down.

Traffic will be stopped from the west side at Gold Creek (milepost 54) and from the east side at Price Creek (milepost 61).

This work is weather dependent and subject to change. Drivers are encouraged to use the following tools to plan trips across I-90 this summer:
