Rock blasting closures over Snoqualmie Pass planned four days next week

Daylight is still sticking around longer, which means crews will close Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. four days next week.


The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews are closing the pass Monday, July 30, through Thursday, Aug. 2, from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61).


Crews are continuing to remove rock from the slopes above I-90, which means more rolling slowdowns and added travel time for drivers between 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday.


Here are some tools to help drivers plan their trips:
