Construction and Increased Traffic Equals Extra Delays

Due to a number of events taking place in eastern Washington this weekend, you're encouraged to either get to your destinations early, wait to go later or use an alternate route.
Starting Thursday, June 23 through Friday, June 24 drivers will see delays on I90 in both directions near the Cle Elum area due to a paving project. Drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route via US 97 to SR 10. 

The Vantage Bridge is still down to a single lane eastbound due to a painting project. Drivers headed east will experience heavy congestion and stop and go traffic between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. and should consider taking an alternate route via US 97, I-82 or SR 24.
And rock blasting is scheduled to close I-90 east of Snoqualmie Pass in both directions from mileposts 56 to 62 for an hour at 8 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, June 21 and Thursday, June 23.
