SNOQUALMIE PASS, WA – Officials with the Washington State Department of Transportation said Interstate 90 was shut down on Sunday afternoon following several spin-out crashes.
According to the Tri-City Herald, the roadway was closed five miles west of the Denny Creek summit near Snoqualmie Pass around 1 p.m.
The snowy and icy highway conditions caused multiple accidents, leading to traffic delays in the area.
The westbound lanes of I-90 reopened in less than one hour. The eastbound lanes were closed for roughly an hour.
Authorities said they would require all vehicles except all-wheel drives traveling the pass in the afternoon and overnight to be equipped with tire chains.
No further details about the crashes were provided. We will update this blog should more information become available.
