 (AP) - Washington transportation officials have reopened Interstate 90 east of Seattle over Snoqualmie Pass after an ice storm closed it Tuesday night.
    
Washington Department of Transportation officials said both directions of the state's main route across the Cascade Mountains reopened by 6 p.m. Thursday.

Crews also performed avalanche control west of the summit to bring down unstable snow.
