WSDOT: I-90 to Close for Rock Blasting

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to close I-90 in both directions for rock blasting this week.

The DOT has work scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. each night, weather permitting.

The rock blasting is part of a $551 million project to expand a 5 mile stretch of the highway from 4 lanes to 6 lanes.

The project should wrap up in the fall of 2017.
