The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close I-90 for rock blasting at a new time next week starting at 7:30 p.m. Crews will close the pass in both directions, east of Snoqualmie Monday, July 8 through Thursday, July 11. The pass was previously closed at 8 p.m. Crews typically blast one hour before sunset. Blasting times depend on the amount of debris that comes down and could exceed two hours.
Drivers will also experience minor delays periodically from North Bend to Ellensburg through multiple construction zones.
