Days Get Shorter, Rock Blasting Closures Get Earlier On Snoqualmie Pass
Closures start at 6:30 p.m. next week. HYAK – As the days get shorter, closures on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass start getting earlier so crews have enough daylight to conduct rock blasting operations. The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close I-90 at 6:30 p.m. for about an hour each night Monday, Sept. 15 through Thursday, Sept. 18. 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).
Intermittent rolling slowdowns could cause 20 minute delays Monday through Friday during the day from Gold Creek (milepost 56) to Price Creek (milepost 61). Drivers will also experience nighttime delays due to a single lane closure through the same location.
Drivers may experience minor delays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. near Vantage (milepost 137) on Monday, Sept. 15. Crews will be closing a single lane westbound to make repairs to the Vantage Bridge. Crews will also be making repairs to the Denny Creek Bridge (milepost 50) on Tuesday, Sept. 16 and Thursday, Sept. 18. Drivers may experience minor delays between 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. due to a single lane closure westbound.
