WSDOT is responsible for ensuring that people and goods move safely and efficiently. Keeping Washington moving requires long term planning, especially when it comes to construction.
Our Construction Traffic Management Team works with dozens of project teams not just from WSDOT but also from counties, cities and other local jurisdictions like ports and transit agencies to assess construction traffic impacts.
The team then identifies hot spots, which consists of several construction projects working in close proximity at the same time. Early coordination in these areas helps to keep traffic moving during construction while allowing agencies to complete their projects on time and within budget.
The maps and schedules on our website reflect the best estimate of future construction closures and are provided for planning purposes only. A number of different factors can cause the maps and schedules to change. In some cases, the maps and schedules might change multiple times before construction occurs.
