The Washington State Department of Transportation and crews plan to close I-90 in both directions between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., Thursday, April 26, from Gold Creek (milepost 56) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61). This work is weather dependent and may change if weather conditions change. Check our What’s Happening on I-90 website for changes to the rock blasting schedule.
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.
The countdown for construction on I-90 between Easton and Cle Elum has started. For the next six weeks starting Monday, April 23, drivers need to plan for delays due to daytime single-lane closures in both directions Monday through Friday morning. Starting Friday, April 27, every weekend crews will open two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane at 9 a.m. on Fridays until 9 a.m. on Sundays. Crews will open two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
This year crews will finish replacing deteriorating sections of concrete roadway and asphalt shoulders in both directions. This project is scheduled to be complete this fall.
