Potential for rock blast to exceed an hour Monday next week east of Snoqualmie Pass | WSDOT

Crews will be blasting in a similar location on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass that caused a three hour closure just a couple of weeks ago.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close I-90 at 8 p.m. Monday, July 14. There is a potential this blast could exceed an hour due to the location and debris that could be produced. During the extended closure, eastbound drivers will be stopped at Gold Creek (milepost 56) and westbound drivers will be stopped near Easton (milepost 70).

Crews will close the pass at 8 p.m. for about an hour each night Tuesday, July 15 through Thursday, July 17 for more rock blasting. Eastbound traffic will be stopped at Gold Creek (milepost 56) and westbound traffic will be stopped at Price Creek (milepost 61).

Intermittent rolling slowdowns are planned Monday through Friday during the day three miles east of the Snoqualmie Pass Summit around Keechelus Lake.

Daytime and nighttime lane closures in both directions could cause delays for drivers between Denny Creek (milepost 47) and the Price Creek vicinity (milepost 62 to 65) Monday through Friday.

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