Holiday weekend travel

View holiday weekend travel charts for the four 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 four 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
  • I-5 Bellingham to Canadian border

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.

Fourth of July weekend travel times vary by year. See how holiday traffic may affect your plans.
