WA Summer 2017 Road Hazards You Need to Know About!
The Washington Department of Transportation has released a list of potential travel hazards that may affect you if you're planning road trips this summer!
A number of road-improvement projects start this week and will continue throughout the summer as we build new lanes, build and repair bridges and fix cracked sections of pavement between North Bend and Ellensburg.
WSDOT has a travel tool kit to assist you with your travel plans this summer!

A new tool in our toolkit to alert you about delays, backups and closures on I-90 between North Bend and Ellensburg. Just text the phrase “WSDOT Snoqulamie” to the number 468311 to start receiving your text message alerts.

Another heavily traveled and visited spot in Washington is Lake Roosevelt and because of the harsh winter there was major damage to at least one roadway and camp spot:
Superintendent has closed all federal land located within the Porcupine Bay Campground and Boat Launch area under the authority granted by 36 CFR §1.5. This closure is due to a landslide of the access road that took place on April 2, 2017 which prevents all vehicle access to the campground and associated area. This closure includes all vehicle, horse, and foot traffic, as well as all shoreline access encompassing all federal land Porcupine Bay Campground and Boat Launch from the park boundary to the waterline.
