SEATTLE — The Washington State Department of Transportation says a problem with the roadway has backed up Interstate 5 traffic southbound into Seattle.

Officials estimate a backup of at least 10 miles plagued drivers trying to get to work on Thursday morning.

At 9 a.m., a spokesman for the Transportation Department said it was taking two hours to travel from the Lynnwood area to Southcenter on interstate 5.

Mike Allende said the backup was the worst he’s ever seen.
