The Washington State Patrol is expecting a major traffic impact due to two events this weekend for Eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle.
Troopers said motorists should first expect delays all over Eastern Washington for the opening home game for Washington State University. They said fans from all over the state will be heading to Pullman and are expected to cause major back ups.
Then on Sunday, the Idaho Transportation Department will close down eastbound I-90 at the Washington-Idaho border due to a construction project. The closure will start Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. and last through 5:00 a.m. Monday morning. All traffic will be diverted to State Line Exit 299 at that time and drivers should see back-up from Liberty Lake to state line.
In order to delay with both traffic delays, Troopers will have all available units working this weekend.
