Eastbound I-90 reopening at Snoqualmie Pass

The Transportation Department says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass will reopen by 8 a.m.

NORTH BEND, Wash. —

The Transportation Department says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass will reopen by 8 a.m.

Regional administrator Don Whitehouse told KCPQ-TV an engineer climbed 300 feet up a slope where a boulder broke loose to make sure it is safe.

Whitehouse says road crews are cleaning up and plowing snow before allowing traffic to resume.

The boulder smashed onto the roadway about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. It was hit by a semi-tanker truck with a load of milk. The driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to Overlake Hospital in Bellevue. Westbound lanes were not restricted.

The National Weather Service says drivers can expect more snow Tuesday in the Cascade passes.
