US 2 Westbound Trestle – Existing traffic

Prior to the COVID-19 virus reducing traffic, nearly 81,000 vehicles used the westbound US 2 trestle each day.

Traffic generally began to pick up quickly from 4 – 6 a.m. and then peak between 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. when approximately 3,200 vehicles crossed the trestle each weekday. Traffic generally decreased through the day and then increased again slightly from 2-3 p.m.

HOV use is about 3% along the corridor. There are three Community Transit bus routes that made about 14 trips during the morning peak period, serving over 300 people.
