I-90 to be shut down at Snoqualmie Pass overnight Saturday

SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. --- Interstate 90 at Snoqualmie Pass is scheduled to be shut down late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

WSDOT said the eastbound lanes will close east of the summit at 10 p.m. on Saturday and reopen on Sunday at 5 a.m.

The westbound lanes are scheduled to close at 12:30 a.m. and reopen on Saturday at 5 a.m.

WSDOT officials said the lanes would be closed so crews could refuel and replace portable lighting in the construction zone. They said the lanes would reopen every two hours to let people stuck at the pass through.

As of Friday evening, Stevens Pass had reopened after being closed for avalanche risk.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated I-90 eastbound would be closed Friday night into Saturday morning based on a tweet from WSDOT that was later corrected.
