U.S. 2 is closed from from milepost 55 to milepost 99. The pass will reportedly be reassessed for reopening at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.


SNOQUALMIE PASS — Interstate 90 Snoqualmie Pass remained closed in both directions Tuesday following an overnight closure and now U.S. 2 Stevens Pass is closed, too.

Snoqualmie Pass remains closed due to heavy snowfall and high avalanche danger. I-90 is estimated to reopen in both directions at 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to WSDOT.

U.S. 2 Stevens Pass is closed, too, in order to clear spinouts. Compact snow and ice were on the roadway midday. As of noon, there was no estimated time to reopen.

U.S. 12 White Pass, the only other route through the Cascades, could not handle the traffic if all drivers looking to go from eastern Washington to Western Washington or vice versa were to come over from I-90 and U.S. 2, according to WSDOT.

There is also a Weather Advisory on U.S. 97 Maryhill in both directions at milepost 0 near Biggs Rapids / Sam Hill to milepost 7, near Stringstreet Road. Traction tires are advised, no oversize loads until further notice.
