I-90 construction to cause 24-hour lane closures

The construction will happen east of Snoqualmie Pass beginning on April 30.

Around the clock lane closures start next week on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass to build the new eastbound lanes.

This work is part of the major improvement project that builds a wider, safer and more reliable stretch of interstate between Hyak and the Stampede Pass interchange.

Contractor crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation will reduce the eastbound and westbound lanes to a single lane in each direction 24 hours a day from 6 a.m. April 30 until 9 a.m. May 3 between mileposts 56 and 60.

Drivers traveling eastbound will experience the most delayon Monday with an added travel time of an hour. Only minimal delays are expected to impact traffic in both directions Tuesday through Thursday.
