(Hyak, WA) Rock blasting planned for Thursday, April 26 on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass is cancelled.
The Washington State Department of Transportation and construction crews successfully removed material above the slopes of I-90 today so drivers don’t have to wait in an hour-long closure tomorrow night.
Rock blasting is part of the $551 million I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East – Hyak to Keechelus Dam project to widen a five-mile stretch of the highway from four to six lanes. The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2017.
