Everett Warnings and Dangers: 4 reviews and 1 photos
Everett seems to be a choke point for traffic on Interstate 5. Highway 2, a major mountains pass route, begins here, and is conduit for copious amounts of commuters. Travel can be at a snails pace, similar to some Ca. areas. Allow 15 minutes extra travel time thru Evertt, a mere 4 miles, if traveling between 2:30pm and 6:00pm, Mon-Fri. Sat-Sun is only slow for southbound traffic, 4:00pm-6:00pm. Speed limit is 60mph, but does rise to 70mph about 5 miles north. There is a soutbound rest area at Everett, but the nearest northbound one is about 10 miles out of Everett. Check out the Washington Dept. of Trans. traffic cameras if you get a chance.
