"We looked at the weather forecasts for the first two weeks of April. Based on what we're seeing, the likelihood of significant ice concerns on a majority of Washington state routes is minimal," said Chris Christopher, WSDOT Director of Maintenance Operations. "We also consulted with our colleagues in Oregon and they are keeping the April 1 deadline as well."
Christopher said the weather forecasts do call for possible snow in the mountains and drivers should be prepared for possible roadway snow and ice if they travel into the higher elevations.
"The mountains will likely get snow. However, we anticipate the snowy conditions will be confined to relatively small segments of the highways in the mountain pass areas. Our crews will be ready to respond."
