Also note that chains are required on I-90 Snoqualmie Pass for all except AWD/4WD (all vehicles are required to at least carry chains).

Our crews are reassessing I-90 and we're hoping to have an update on that shortly.UPDATE 6:14 p.m.: The Keller Ferry on SR 21 that crosses the Columbia River is also now closed due to high winds.
