State serves Thanksgiving travel tips to motorists

November 20, 2012

By Staff

Before the feast, Thanksgiving launches the holiday travel season.

The state Department of Transportation is offering numerous travel information tools for motorists headed out during the holiday weekend.

Thanksgiving weekend typically ranks among the busiest periods all year for Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass.

In the Puget Sound area, Interstate 5 and I-90 express lanes operate on a weekend schedule Nov. 22, Thanksgiving.

Work at most construction sites around the state moves off the highways for the holiday weekend from noon Nov. 21 until Nov. 26. Even so, drivers should watch for shifted lanes, detours and reduced-speed zones.

Motorists can see information, such as camera images and maps, showing highway incidents and closures, on the agency’s travel website, www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic.
