TRAFFIC ALERT | Snoqualmie Pass to close four nights April 22-25 for rock blasting

April 19, 2013 · Updated 3:18 PM

HYAK — More rock blasting closures are planned for next week on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass and drivers need to plan for added travel time.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and crews plan to close I-90 in both directions from 7 to 8 p.m., Monday, April 22 through Thursday, April 25, from Gold Creek (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61). This work is weather dependent and may change if weather conditions change. Check our What’s Happening on I-90 website for changes to the rock blasting schedule.

Rock blasting is part of the $551 million I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East – Hyak to Keechelus Dam project to widen a five-mile stretch of the highway from four to six lanes. The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2017.
