Single lane closures to cause delays next week over Snoqualmie Pass

In preparation for major width and lane restrictions starting April 12, contractor crews will reduce Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass to a single lane in each direction 24 hours a day next week.


The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close a lane in each direction from 9 p.m. Sunday, April 6 through 9 a.m. Friday, April 11 between Gold Creek (milepost 56) and the Price Creek vicinity (milepost 61). Drivers need to plan for added travel time.

Drivers will also experience minor delays Monday through Friday due to shoulder and ramp closures at the Oakes Ave Interchange near Cle Elum (milepost 85) and the Thorpe Road Interchange near Ellensburg (milepost 101). The westbound Indian John Rest Area will close to travelers at 6 a.m. Monday, April 7 until 7 p.m. Thursday, April 10. Drivers will need to watch for signs directing them to the next rest area.


It’s going to be a very busy construction season and drivers need to use the following resources to help plan their trips over I-90:
