WSDOT urges drivers to be prepared before they head out. Check the Web and listen to the radio for important information. 
We have a variety of tools to help drivers plan ahead:

  • Check our Seattle flow page for traffic information
  • Check our travel alerts page for road closures, stalls or other incidents that might affect your commute
  • Check out the Social Room to follow social media updates
