Declare independence from roadway delays this 4th of July weekend by knowing about the traffic conditions before you go. For up to date travel information, use WSDOT’s online travel alerts or their 24-hour traveler information line, 5-1-1.
WSDOT says that drivers can expect to see more traffic on the region’s highways this weekend, with peak travel times from noon to 9 p.m. Friday and early Saturday. Monday afternoon travel back into the Puget Sound area will peak just before noon and continue into late evening. Work at most construction projects around the state will move off the highway from noon Friday until Tuesday morning.
Also be aware that some of Bellevue’s downtown streets will be closed Sunday evening to accommodate Symetra Bellevue Family 4th event traffic. The street closures will start at 9:30 p.m. and will reopen at 10:05 p.m. Link to an article posted on the Seattle Times Bellevue Blog to learn more.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
