I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass reopens at 4 a.m. Saturday
I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass is open this morning. Department of Transportation crews worked all night to reopen the pass at about 4 a.m. Saturday morning.
Avalanche control teams used more than 365 pounds of explosives to clear 30 avalanche paths on Friday and crews worked through the night to clear snow off the road.
I-90 had been closed since Wednesday afternoon because of avalanche danger. Transportation officials believe the road is safe from avalanches, for now. But that doesn't mean winter driving conditions have gone away. Drivers can expect snow and ice across all lanes of I-90 Saturday near the pass.
The DOT says it will close the freeway for at least an hour at a time as it continues to do avalanche control work.
