The delays on Snoqualmie Pass are over for this year. The new eastbound lanes opened to traffic just after 7 a.m. today.
The Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews worked around the clock this week to pave transitions between old and new eastbound lanes. Today thousands of drivers who travel over the pass will find a new, wider eastbound highway and bridges between Hyak (milepost 54) and Rocky Run Creek (milepost 57).
Crews also wrapped up rock blasting for winter and plan to be off the road by early November.
