Labor Day weekend travel times

Labor Day weekend travel times vary by year. See how holiday traffic may affect your plans.

On weekend holidays, state highways across Washington will see higher than usual traffic, especially on Interstate 90, where lengthy delays are expected. Longer than typical wait times at ferry docks also are expected during a holiday that falls on a weekend.

WSDOT crews work hard to ensure travelers reach their destination safely and advise travelers to plan ahead to save time and frustration. Travelers also can use WSDOT’s online tools, the WSDOT app and social media accounts to track current travel conditions.
