The WSDOT Has Sure Been Busy Today

Another item just received from the Washington State Patrol:

Drivers in Eastern Washington should be aware that there is an ongoing possibility of intermittent blowing dust and reduced visibility on I-90. The affected area is approximately twenty miles east of Moses Lake, but may extend further if conditions worsen. These conditions are not exclusive to I-90 and may extend onto county roads in the area.

The Washington State Patrol reminds you to drive with caution and prepare your vehicle and occupants for possible extended delays. Please slow down, turn on your headlights and consider using emergency hazard lights as conditions dictate. Please get off the freeway if conditions become too much to drive in, and if you can't get off the freeway,pull as far to the right as possible and remain in your vehicle.
