Avalanche control work is scheduled near the snow shed east of Snoqualmie Summit on Interstate 90 beginning at 10:30 a.m. today, the state Department of Transportation reports.
Eastbound traffic will be stopped at milepost 47 near Denny Creek and milepost 56 near Gold Creek. Westbound traffic will be stopped at milepost 61 near Price Creek.
Due to the nature of this type of work a reopening time cannot be estimated. Once the snow volume brought down by the avalanche control is assessed, an estimated reopen time can be determined.
