This inquiry goes out to Vancouver BC residents (or northern Washington dudes) who have taken both US-2 and I-90 in the past couple years. 2 years ago I had a really bad experience on the I-90, traffic was nuts. I swear we sat for a good hour at least. It was so bad that I completely avoided it last year and took US-2 both ways, which was fine but the mountains are quite treacherous.
Anyway, I was wondering what your experiences have been like. This year I'm hoping to be across the border by 9:30-10 am on Thursday. I just want to get there super fast and painlessly because I am a huge baby who is afraid of driving.
I have never taken US-2, but I definitely know the jam you are talking about from a few years ago. There is no guarantee that could not happen again, and it tends to every year because not only are we all going to Sasquatch, but every damn person in Seattle is also going camping for the long weekend. If you have had good experience with the other option and you hate sitting in traffic, I would suggest doing that... for your health,
Thanks for your input! Maybe I'll try it again this year. I guess I'll just keep checking WSDOT to make sure they're not doing any of that single lane bullshit. So much anxiety associated with the alternative route. Someone drive my car please.
