Traffic delays this week for Snoqualmie Pass

Posted: Updated:
October 1, 2012 -

SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. - Drivers headed to Snoqualmie Pass in the evenings this week should expect some delays.

Back in August, the Washington State Department of Transportation blasted near the snowshed, which resulted in a huge amount of debris covering the roadway. 40 dump trucks had to work for three hours to clear I-90, and now crews are facing similar challenges.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews will close the pass at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 4, from Hyak (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61). A reopening time depends on how quickly the crews can remove the debris and evaluate any damage to the highway. The DOT says drivers need to plan for more than 2 hours of added travel time.

From Monday through Wednesday, (October 1 to October 3) closures are scheduled for one hour from 6 to 7 PM. And don't forget, speed-enforcement cameras continue to monitor speeds through the 5-mile work zone on I-90. Drivers traveling above the posted speed limit of 60 mph could face a $137 fine.

    WASHINGTON: It's barely pumpkin latte season and already signs are up advertising *flu* shots! One vaccine that's been off the market for a couple years is back this year. Two years ago the nasal spray vaccine was taken off the market because the Center for Disease Control said it was no longer effective for that particular flu season. For those who tend to get a little needle frantic, the CDC now says this year's nasal spray vaccine should be effective for this year's flu strain. I...More >>
