Bicycle travel advisories

The following closure advisories provide specific milepost restrictions. Milepost information can be obtained from the WSDOT GeoPortal Map Application. Alternate routes are available where travel is restricted. In some cases alternate route options are indicated below, however WSDOT does not recommend specific routing.

Temporary access restrictions

Temporary bicycle travel restrictions are sometimes associated with projects around the state. Please refer to the WSDOT Projects webpage and Projects Interactive Map to determine if restrictions are in place. WSDOT contact staff, identified on project pages, can provide more information regarding possible access restrictions for a given project. Please note that the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East project is associated with long-term travel restrictions. The 2019 travel restrictions for that project are detailed on the I-90 Corridor - North Bend to Vantage Bike Detour map (pdf 814 kb) and additional information can be found on the project website.
