Memorial Day Travel Recap

Did you take a trip over the Memorial Day weekend? A lot of other people did, but overall, travel numbers across the state were down.

6,000 less vehicles traveled over Snoqualmie Pass as during the same time period last year. Those who did travel, left for their destinations earlier in the day than past years and the stretch of I5 between Olympia and Tacoma showed a slight increase in weekend traffic.

The WSDOT blog has all the holiday weekend traffic stats.
