*Note: The 2017 I-90 charts do not reflect ongoing construction at North Bend and Cle Elum that will delay traffic Friday (eastbound) and Monday (westbound). They still serve as a guide for which days and times are expected to see the most congestion, but the actual volumes may be higher and possibly last longer.

 

What do the colors mean for drivers?

WSDOT traffic analysts looked at how many cars were on the road past Labor Day weekends. Based on this historical data, the graphs shows how many cars (vertical axis) we project to be on the road each hour (horizontal axis) for Labor Day Weekend 2017. As the graphs turn from green to yellow, drivers can expect some congestion. During the red hours, traffic analysts predict travel will reach roadway capacity. Once a roadway reaches capacity, any small incident can cause significant backups.

What about the black line?

The black line running from left to right show typical summer traffic. This gives drivers more information on how the Labor Day 2017 holiday weekend travel may relate to a typical summer weekend.
