Chain-up or pay up this winter on Snoqualmie Pass

Unfortunately, many drivers crossing snowy mountain passes either don’t carry chains despite it being required by law, or don’t put them on. 

For the past several years, more than half of the closures on I-90 Snoqualmie Pass have been due to vehicles ignoring a chain-up requirement and then getting into collisions and blocking lanes.

This winter WSDOT is working with the Washington State Patrol to enforce chain requirements during storms and inclement weather on Snoqualmie Pass. 

So if you’re headed over the pass, make sure you and your vehicle are prepared. Ignoring the chain requirements could cost you $500.

Here are a few reminders from WSDOT:
