Because of the hazardous driving conditions, and the closure of the three Washington Cascades passes Governor Jay Inslee issued a weather-related Emergency proclamation. The action waives commercial driver hours for drivers who are collecting or delivering essential supplies and services. The original weather-related emergency order will remain in effect until rescinded.

The commercial driver hours waiver is in effect through January 14th.
