BURLINGTON, Wash – The Skagit County Tulip Festival started Tuesday and state troopers said they would be on the highway ensuring visitors made it to and from the fields safely.

“The last thing we want to have is a serious injury or fatality collision caused by visual distractions outside their vehicles,” said WSP District 7 Captain Jeff Sass. “We want drivers to have a safe trip to and from the festival.”

WSP identified the following areas where troopers expected extra

  • Both north and southbound I-6 exits between Conway and Burlington
  • SR-20 between the City of Burlington and Anacortes
  • SR-536 (Memorial Highway) between Mount Vernon and SR-20.
  • Watch for a high volume of bicycle and pedestrian traffic along SR-536 between Beaver Marsh Road and Bradshaw road.

The festival runs through April 30th.
