Eastbound I-90 was temporarily closed for nearly two and a half hours Friday morning after 30 semi-trucks spun out, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

WSDOT announced the closure around 7:45 a.m. saying the road was closed at milepost 34 through the pass.

According to Washington State Trooper Rick Johnson, 30 semis had to pull off to the side of the road to chain up after “multiple collisions” were blocking the roadway.

Just after 9 a.m., I-90 reopened to traffic.

Chains are required for drivers traveling eastbound, and traction tires are required for drivers traveling westbound.
