Hi,

As stated in the header, has anyone driven this route recently?

I'm planning to do the trip in about a months time. Anyone know the speed limit along that stretch of interstate? Any towns or communities along the way that are notorious for speed traps?

Any information will be most appreciated.

Cheers,
'949

The passenger vehicle speed limit is 70 mph in most areas. Obviously, there are a few speed reductions heading through the Cascades.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Stop at moses lake. there is a large teasting ground for large aircraft including 747's. Also the first 737 is on display there.

It's 70 from about Issaquah to Spokane except through Snoqualime pass. Most do at least 75 and some faster. I don't like to push it...I do no more than 75...it's about a 4 hour drive. It's two lanes each way, no towns you have to slow down for, and no normal areas where the cops hang out I know of. It's about 280 miles.

If your not in a hurry....take US 2 through Monroe, Leavenworth, Wenatchee, Waterville, Warden, and Davenport. It takes at least an hour longer but it's more interesting...especially the first half.

I grew up in Wenatchee and live near Spokane...so you are talking about my back yard.

The 747's you are talking about in Moses Hole are actually from a training base that JAL operates there. Strange too see a 747 doing closed pattern work and touch and goes, but happens all the time there. Have lunch at Texas Johns if you do stop in Moses Lake

There is a speed trap from time to time between Ellensburg and Vantage.

Drove it last July......Up by Moses Lake they have signs along the road that tell what crop is in the field.

Probably won't help you a lot this time of the year.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

I have driven this strech many, many, many times.

WATCH OUT when you're coming down the hill to cross the Columbia River (coming into Vantage)... there are many curves and the Washington State Patrol likes to hide out and flag you to the shoulder... we got busted there last time going 10-15 over.

Like Don said, try US2 if you're not in a hurry-- its really senic. Also, Highway 410 is a great senic route around Mt Rainier... it hooks up with I-82 near I-90.

Have a great time!
