UPDATE: The rock blasting is finished and the road is open in both directions, according to WSDOT.

INITIAL POST: Rock blasting has closed Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation about 8 p.m.

Westbound traffic is stopped by Price Creek at milepost 61, and eastbound traffic is stalled by Hyak at milepost 54.

WSDOT won’t know when the road will reopen until after the blasting is finished, but recommends travelers add an extra hour to their trips.
