    Starting Monday, sightseers will now pay for Snoqualmie Falls parking near the iconic waterfall's gift shop and trail head. 

    Puget Sound Energy sent a news release citing it’s an effort to reduce traffic congestion. 

    The 50 parking spots in the Snoqualmie Falls Park gift shop lot will become 'pay to park.' There will be nine additional paid spots for motorcycles. ADA parking will be available at no charge.

    More than 300 spaces in the upper and lower lot off of Snoqualmie Parkway will remain free.

    There will be an added overflow lot off of Snoqualmie Parkway at Railroad Avenue available, which can accommodate about 150 vehicles.  

    PSE operates Snoqualmie Falls Park because of its hydroelectric project, which is one of the Pacific Northwest's oldest hydropower facilities and home to the world's first hydroelectric plant built completely underground.
