ORIGINAL STORY

The Washington State Department of Transportation confirmed at 12:50PM, September 26, 2016, that an emergency paving job was responsible for the traffic backup on westbound I-90 just west of SR 18.

According to drivers, it appeared WSDOT was re-paving/fixing the numerous potholes on the Raging River overpass on the approach to Preston – and two lanes were closed in the area.

With only one lane open through the paving area, numerous drivers reported traffic at a standstill as early at 10AM –  until they got past Preston, at approximately milepost 22.

WSDOT said the roadwork should finish up hopefully around 2pm.
