Drivers Try to Beat Memorial Day Rush Home

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -    If you have to travel over I-90 Snoqualmie Pass tonight, the DOT says you should expect delays

Cars, trucks and campers began returning home this morning after a Memorial Day Weekend get-away.

At the Selah Rest Stop, there were drivers from all over the northwest.  They pulled in to fill up and grab a quick bite before facing what they knew could be a long trip home. 

"If you leave before two o'clock it's not too bad, but it can get pretty backed up after that," says Kenneth Jackson, a Bellevue resident, who was taking his family home after a weekend in Yakima.

That's worst way for you to travel if you want to avoid traffic.  The DOT says Snoqualmie Pass will be stop and go until about ten oc'clock tonight

"That's why we have this camper. We have a kitchen to cook something. We're fine," says Jeremy Jepsen who was heading home to Bothell.
