Plan ahead for Labor Day travel
August 29, 2018
Labor Day weekend is often the last big weekend of summer travel, so planning ahead and being prepared for occasional congestion is crucial to a successful end-of-summer excursion.
Travelers can consult the Washington State Department of Transportation’s holiday-weekend traffic volume charts to help plan the best times to travel on key routes. If possible, altering travel to less busy times can not only improve individual trips but also help keep all traffic flowing more freely. Those venturing out on land or sea can also use several WSDOT tools to “know before you go” as well as keep updated throughout the trip.
