The trip over Snoqualmie Pass is going to look very different starting this week. The ‘snowshed,’ a tunnel that protected drivers from avalanches on the pass, is coming down this week, after 64 years in service. It’s part of the plan to improve facilities on the pass and will be replaced with avalanche bridges.

More info on the Snoqualmie project, and what it means for your trip planning, and the interesting history of the snowshed, can be found on the Washington State Department of Transportation blog here.
