Yes, it’s early October, but Snoqualmie and Stevens passes were a snowy trek for drivers this morning.
About 8 inches of snow fell in some places on Stevens and traction tires were required for much of the morning.
And at about 10 a.m. a stuck semi blocked the eastbound lanes.
Eventually, chains were required for all large rigs.
Though the highway had improved considerably by 1 p.m., traction tires were still required.
Unsurprisingly, a Chelan County project near the summit was disrupted by the snowstorm.
A contractor is replacing two damaged culverts and installing a single-span bridge on Stevens Road.
