Construction To Wrap Up Early On Friday

If you're trying to get out of town early tomorrow to beat the rush, here's some good news; most area construction work will be suspended by noon on Friday in anticipation of increased holiday traffic. Area agencies plan to have crews off the roads in order to make traffic flow easier.

If you can't decide when to travel though, the Washington State Department of Transportation has some 'travel graphs' that can help you decide the best times to travel highways around the state.
