As the days get shorter, closures on Interstate 90 across Snoqualmie Pass will get earlier this week so crews have enough daylight to conduct rock blasting operations.
The WSDOT and contractor crews will close I-90 at 7:30 pm for about an our each night- Monday, August 8, through Thursday, August 11. During rock blasting closures, eastbound drivers will be stopped at milepost 56 near Gold Creek and westbound drivers will be stopped at milepost 62 near the Stampede Pass interchange.
Construction related impacts due to lane closures and detours through multiple work zones will cause delays next week from the summit of Snoqualmie Pass to Vantage.
