I-90 across the Snoqualmie Pass closed

The Washington State Department of Transportation announced on Friday morning that I-90 Snoqualmie Pass would be closed from milepost 34 to milepost 106.

WSDOT put out an alert at 10:53 a.m. detailing the closure, stating that the road was “closed in both directions due to icy road conditions and collisions blocking the roadway.”

Eastbound traffic has been closed at milepost 34 at North Bend and traffic going west has been closed at milepost 106 at Ellensburg. Westbound lanes are planned to reopen at 12:30 p.m. and crews will determine when to reopen the eastbound lanes at 2 p.m. after they evaluate the conditions.

More updates, including traffic cameras along I-90, can be found at wsdot.com.
