Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass to temporarily shut down for avalanche control

Tribune News Service

CLE ELUM, Wash. – Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass will be shut down Tuesday for avalanche control work, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The shutdown was scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. The DOT says it usually takes anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours to complete this kind of work, but staffers won’t have a good estimate of how long the closure will last until they start working.

During the shutdown westbound traffic will be stopped near Price Creek and eastbound traffic will be stopped near Gold Creek, the DOT said.
