Get ready because construction work on Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass begins this week. Crews will be closing lanes in order to build new lanes and bridges, repair existing roadway and fix cracked sections of pavement between the pass and North Bend.

Last week, work resumed on the  I-90 Snoqulamie Pass East project that will build a wider, safer and more reliable stretch of the interstate from Hyak to Keechelus Dam, and from Keechelus Dam to the Stampede Pass interchange. This 7-mile section of the project is scheduled to be completed by this fall, which includes the first wildlife crossing to be built over I-90.

Several I-90 interchanges in Easton, Thorpe and Ellensburg will be repaved this summer.

Plan ahead because there will be delays.
