Drivers traveling westbound on Fridays need to plan for up to two hours of added travel time and an hour on Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. On Sundays drivers traveling eastbound and westbound need to plan for two or more hours of added travel time between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Drivers will also experience minor delays during the week due to these lane restrictions. During the next six weeks, drivers are encouraged to use the WSDOT travel graphs online to find the best times to travel in order to avoid delays.
