Holiday weekend travel
View holiday weekend travel charts for the three routes that historically see the most holiday traffic congestion and that do not have other alternative route options
Holiday weekend travel charts are provided for the three routes that historically see the most holiday traffic congestion and that do not have other alternative route options:
- US 2 between Skykomish and Stevens Pass
- I-90 North Bend to Cle Elum
- I-5 Lacey to Tacoma
Christmas and Fourth of July travel charts are provided only on years that the holiday creates a three-day weekend (when the holiday falls on a Monday, Saturday, Sunday or Friday). If the holiday falls on other days of the week there is not enough consistent travel on any given day to generate accurate charts.
Slow down – lives are on the line.
In 2022, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.
Even one life lost is too many.
Each year about 670 people are killed nationally in highway work zones. In 2022, Washington had six fatal work zone crashes on state roads.
It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.
95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
