North Bend to Ellensburg Summer Construction – 2022 Construction Projects and Expected Delays

Cross-state travelers will need to add extra travel time to their summer and fall trips. The Washington State Department of Transportation and construction crews will be busy improving sections of Interstate 90 from North Bend to Ellensburg.

Approximately seven construction projects with multiple construction areas are slated for 2022 through this 75-mile corridor.

Delays will primarily occur on weekdays. During summer weekends, as usual, there are delays due to traffic increases on Sundays.

Here is a partial list of construction projects on I-90 this summer and fall. Plan for delays through multiple areas and closures in August and September for rock blasting.
