Leavenworth Christmas Lighting traffic advisory – for Week #2 – Friday 12/7 – Sunday 12/9

Traveling on US 2 to Leavenworth for week #2 of the annual Christmas Lighting Festival creates some heavy congestion east of and in town. Here are the travel time graphs for Saturday and Sunday to help you plan:

Here’s how it worked for drivers last year:

  • Friday – Little to no traffic delays coming or going.
  • Saturday – 50-minute delays between Noon and 8 p.m. getting into town from the Big Y and 40-minute delays between 5 and 9 p.m. getting out of town.
  • Sunday – there were 10 to 20-minute delays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. getting into town and the same slow traffic from 4 to 7 p.m. leaving Leavenworth.

WSDOT once again encourages drivers coming for the lighting festival to “Know before you go”.
