Snoqualmie Pass Delays

Taking a trip to Seattle one of these weekends soon? Then be prepared to spend some extra time on the pass. The Washington State Department of Transportation is warning drivers they should plan for 30 minutes added travel time on weekend commutes across Snoqualmie Pass

Crews in that area are continuing to work on the I-90 Lake Easton to Bullfrog project and the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East – Hyak to Keechelus Dam project.

If making the trek, you'll encounter the following traffic impacts on I-90 between Easton (milepost 70) and Nelson Siding Road (milepost 74):

· From Monday, May 3, to Thursday, May 6, crews will restrict I-90 to one lane in each direction.

· To accommodate weekend traffic volumes, crews will open two lanes in the eastbound direction of I-90, with one lane open in the westbound direction from 9 a.m. Friday, May 7, to 9 a.m. Sunday, May 9.

· On Sunday, May 9, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., crews will open two lanes in the westbound direction of I-90, with one lane open in the eastbound direction.

· Westbound on- and off-ramps of Exit 71 (Easton) are closed until June 15. The eastbound on-ramp at Exit 70 (Sparks Road) is temporarily open to traffic.
