Mid-Columbia drivers heading to Seattle Friday and returning Sunday should plan for an extra two hours on the road each way, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Drivers can expect congestion to start building at 11 a.m. Friday and Saturday and continue until 8 p.m. each day on Interstate 90 near Easton.
Traveling back to the Mid-Columbia, congestion should be expected from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
Traffic will be heavy because of sporting events and because repair work is being done on the westbound bridge deck of the Yakima River Bridge, the state said. Traffic is restricted to one lane across the bridge until work is completed in mid-October.
