Ellensburg I-90 wb closure crash

Update: I-90 westbound has reopened near Ellensburg after crews cleared a semi-truck collision.

Previous coverage: ELLENSBURG, Wash. - I-90 westbound is closed near Ellensburg due to multiple collisions within about a 16-mile stretch Tuesday morning.

Washington State Patrol Trooper John Bryant said the blocking collision at milepost 90 has led to the closure at milepost 106 near Ellensburg.

An estimated time for reopening is unknown. Delays should be expected.

An alternate route is available from US-97 to SR-970 through Cle Elum.
