HYAK, Wash. -- Crews are back on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass next week, chipping away at the slopes high above the road with rock blasting.

The Washington Department of Transportation plans to close I-90 in both directions from 7PM to 8PM on Tuesday, April 16-Thursday, April 18th. The closure will stretch from Gold Creek (milepost 54) to the Price Creek Sno-Park (milepost 61).

Crews are using that hour on Tuesday and Wednesday to prepare the work zone for a potential rock blast on Thursday.

This work all depends on the weather.

Rock blasting is part of the $551 million project to widen a five mile stretch of I-90 from four to six lanes. The project is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2017.
