Plenty of work on cross-state routes Aug. 28 through Sept. 1

By Mike Allende

Our busy – and hot – summer construction season is entering the final stretch and crews are working to get as much done before the wetter months of the year get here.

This is especially true of our cross-state highways and people using US 2, I-90 and US 12 will want to plan for extra travel time across the mountain passes. Construction and maintenance work will cause delays for those heading east and west.

Among the projects are paving work on US 2 in Sultan and just outside of Leavenworth, traffic shifts and detours on I-90 from North Bend to Cle Elum for a variety of bridge deck repair and paving, and roadwork on US 12 White Pass.

The length of delay varies depending on traffic and if there are any collisions or stalls so be sure to plan plenty of extra time and be sure you and your vehicle are prepared for any potential lengthy delays.
