Traction tires required on Stevens, Snoqualmie Passes as snow blankets roadways
STEVENS PASS, Wash. -- Traction tires are required on Stevens and Snoqualmie passes after early season snow blanketed the roadways Tuesday and caused traffic headaches. Traction tires were advised for much of the day, but now they're required in both areas until further notice. Chains are required on vehicles over 10,000 gross vehicle weight, and oversized vehicles are prohibited, Bryant said.
