SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. (AP) - Crews have cleared the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 at mile post 50 near the summit of Snoqualmie Pass, where a snow slide had blocked traffic.

The right lane remains closed at mile post 51, and traffic is passing in the left two lanes.

The state Department of Transportation says drivers should expect long delays as a 10-mile backup clears.

The slide blocked the highway around 11:30 a.m. Sunday. It took crews about two hours to clear most of it away.
