Delays Next Week East Of Snoqualmie Pass Due To Lane And Rock Blasting Closures

HYAK – Drivers traveling over Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass next week should plan for added travel time due to multiple lane closures and nightly rock blasting closures.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close I-90 at 6 p.m. for about an hour each night Monday, Oct. 6 through Thursday, Oct. 9. During rock blasting closures, eastbound drivers will be stopped at Gold Creek (milepost 56) and westbound drivers will be stopped at Price Creek (milepost 61).

Drivers should plan for added travel time due to lane closures in several locations between Gold Creek (milepost 56) and Price Creek (milepost 61). Drivers will also experience delays of up to 20 minutes through the same location due to rolling slowdowns.


WDFW Lifts Fire Restrictions On Most Lands East Of The Cascades

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has lifted restrictions on most department-managed lands in eastern Washington, where cooler temperatures and fall rains have reduced fire danger.

Clay Sprague, WDFW land manager, said the department’s action is consistent with changes in fire rules approved recently by the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR), which provides fire protection for many state wildlife areas.

"A cool, damp start to autumn resulted in the lifting of fire restrictions in eastern Washington, but we still urge campers and others heading outdoors to be extremely cautious," Sprague said.

Sprague emphasized, however, that some localized restrictions will remain in place, including a campfire ban through Oct. 15 at all WDFW wildlife areas in Benton, Franklin, Yakima, and Kittitas counties.

Similarly, a campfire ban is in place at the Columbia Basin Wildlife Area in Grant and Adams counties through Oct. 31. Maps and comprehensive information about WDFW’s wildlife areas can be found at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/wildlife_areas/.

Any further updates will be posted on WDFW’s website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/. For more information on fire danger in Washington, visit the DNR website at http://www.dnr.wa.gov/Pages/default.aspx.
