Heavy Labor Day traffic expected throughout Western Washington



Drivers should expect heavy traffic Monday as travelers return from Labor Day Weekend excursions.

One of the worst spots is expected to be the stretch of Interstate 5 northbound between Olympia and Tacoma, the Washington State Department of Transportation said. Stop-and-go traffic is expected between about 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Other trouble spots include I-5 between Bellingham and the Canadian border, U.S. 2 from Leavenworth to Everett and Interstate 90 between North Bend and Cle Elum.

Other roadways may become more congested than normal because of traffic spilling off from those choke points.
