A Warning If You're Travelling The Pass This Weekend

It's a busy day for WSDOT. They just sent out this 'Special High Traffic Impact Alert for Snoqualmie Pass' due to delays caused by road construction there:

Between Cle Elum and Easton on Fridays and Saturdays, westbound travelers from eastern Washington to the Seattle area may experience heavy congestion, slow traffic, and up to two hours of additional travel time between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

On Sundays from Easton to Cle Elum, eastbound travelers may experience heavy congestion, slow traffic, and up to two hours of additional travel time between noon and 8 p.m. During other hours, drivers may experience slower traffic and some congestion. There is also a legal speed reduction to 50 mph in this area.
