Labor Day Weekend Traffic Expected To Be Heavy Even With High Gas Prices

Even though gas prices have spiked recently as the result of Tropical Storm Harvey traffic is still expected to be very heavy for the Labor Day weekend.

According to the state Department of Transportation beginning on Friday one of the busiest spots will be I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass as people west of the Cascades head east for a final summer getaway.

One issue impacting traffic will be the the ongoing daytime closure of Chinook Pass due to the Norse Peak wildfire.
