Find out what the buzz is about this summer on Snoqualmie Pass; don’t be the only one left behind

by guest blogger Meagan McFadden

It’s full of twists and turns, explosive detail and it’s only a click away. It’s the 2012 Construction Video for the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East project and it’s debuting on our YouTube channel. Critics are calling it fascinating, compelling to watch and clever.

Construction is underway in a number of locations on I-90 and you don’t want to be left behind in the back-ups. Check out the video now so you can plan your summer trip and avoid construction delays. Plus learn a little background on the I-90 Snoqualmie Project to find out why we are improving this five-mile section of roadway and making other improvements along the corridor.



Find out more at our what’s happening on I-90 website and our I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project page and the Lake Easton to Big Creek Project.

Wow, that's quite the artist! Did he draw Flanders from the Simpson's as the driver of the truck? :)

Wait, are you still doing this? I heard on the news last week that WSDOT won't do the new snow sheds any more- they're considering bridges to go over the potential avalanches instead. What's the plan?

WSDOT said...

WSDOT’s selected alternative for the I-90 project is to replace the existing snowshed with a new snowshed. The contractor, selected to build the final two miles of the project, submitted a proposal to replace the snowshed with two bridges. WSDOT and the contractor are currently preparing a limited scope Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement that will compare and contrast the two bridges with the new snowshed. Until a decision is made and filed with the Federal register, WSDOT and the contractor will continue work outside of the area being analyzed by the limited scope SEIS.
