EASTON – Potholes and broken asphalt create a bumpy ride for drivers who travel along a five-mile stretch of Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass. Next week crews will start work to repair this section of I-90.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will close a single lane nightly in each direction of I-90 from Monday night, Aug. 1, to Friday morning, Aug. 5, from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. each day, between Price Creek (milepost 62) and Easton Hill (milepost 68).
This project is a temporary solution to repair damaged asphalt on I-90 until WSDOT can secure funding to pave this five-mile section of highway.
The speed limit through the work zone will be reduced to 55 mph and drivers are urged to obey the speed limit and “give em a brake.”
Drivers can use the following tools to better plan their trips across the pass:
