Morning commuters coming from Highway 522 are lined up on a ramp above Interstate 405 near Woodinville recently. Officials say the increasing gridlock is costing the region time, money, air quality and, according to a growing body of research, human happiness.
Interstate 405 from Lynnwood to Tukwila is one of the most congested corridors in the region. Lawmakers hope a new transportation package will address some of the worst choke points, while commuters say getting around requires planning, patience and sometimes advance meditation.
