Eastbound Interstate 90 at Snoqualmie Pass reopened

Associated Press
UPDATE: Crews reopened the roadway at 9 a.m.

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. – A winter storm pounding Snoqualmie Pass triggered a landslide that forced the closure of Interstate 90 eastbound.

Washington transportation officials say multiple trees and rocks came down onto the roadway early Monday during a severe snow storm.

Officials planned to assess the stability of the slopes above the road before allowing the pass to reopen for eastbound traffic.
