Lane restrictions are ending Friday after repairs to the Cle Elum bridge. Crews finish striping between North Bend and Ellensburg next week.
Spokeswoman Meagan McFadden said I-90 drivers will have two lanes in each direction over the pass. There are three lanes westbound for a one-mile section near Hyak. Westbound drivers also have a wider chain-up area near Hyak.
Next fall the department plans to open three lanes in each direction in a three-mile stretch where crews have been blasting away rock. They hope to extend the three-lane stretch to five miles in 2017 near Lake Keechelus.
About 27,000 vehicles a day cross Snoqualmie Pass on the state's main east-west highway.
