Eastbound I-90 was temporarily closed at milepost 34 through the pass after over two-dozen semi-trucks had to pull over to chain up their tires for heavy snow Friday morning.
The closure started around 6:30 a.m. Friday. According to Washington State Trooper Rick Johnson, 30 semis had to chain up in total. Just after 8 a.m., the Washington State Department of Transportation further clarified that “multiple collisions” were also blocking the roadway, adding that “there is no estimated time to reopen.”
Just after 9 a.m., both eastbound and westbound I-90 had reopened to traffic. Chains are required for drivers traveling eastbound and traction tires are required for drivers traveling westbound.
