I-5 Southbound near NE 195th Street looks clogged as can be.

Brett Cihon September 24, 20148:52 AM


This is all the way up in Edmonds on I-5 near 112th ST SW

Brett Cihon September 24, 20148:53 AM

The 520 bridge looks OK at this point. Might be a good idea to pay the toll.

Yeesh. Look at this mess near the intersection of I-405 and SR 522 near Woodinville. Avoid if possible.

Too funny

Sumner to Kent was 50 minutes this morning, we’re hearing. That’s a long commute for Pierce County.

Brett Cihon September 24, 20149:00 AM

I-90 should soon improve with this accident out of the way.

Brett Cihon September 24, 20149:02 AM

The express lanes are actually worse? Well, just a minute worse from Everett to Seattle. What’s that expression? Six one, half dozen the other?

Want some good news? Redmond to Bellevue is currently 10 minutes. Normal travel time? 10 minutes. We suggest that commute, if you have to pick one.

Brett Cihon September 24, 20149:06 AM

Keep this in mind if you’re going Alderwood to Southcenter this morning.
