HYAK – Rock blasting closures and rolling slowdowns are planned next week on Interstate 90 near Snoqualmie Pass and travelers need to plan for added travel time.

During the closures, eastbound travelers will be stopped at milepost 63 and westbound travelers will be stopped at exit 70 near Easton.

WSDOT maintenance crews will be removing trees along I-90 during the day Monday, Oct. 30 through Wednesday, Nov. 1. This work requires rolling slowdowns westbound at milepost 53, near the summit of Snoqualmie Pass and will cause minor delays for travelers.
