Texting notifications

Beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 29, how you receive text notifications from WSDOT will change, but you can continue receiving the exact same information.

How?
To continue receiving mobile notifications from WSDOT, please download the WSDOT app, available for iPhone and Android, and tap on “notifications.” There you will see a variety of options to continue receiving real-time notifications sent directly to your mobile device.

Why?
We are making the shift from text alerts to app notifications and email as part of a larger effort to ensure sustainability in how we share information and reduce costs.

Text alerts will continue for the following:

  1. Hood Canal bridge openings
  2. Interstate bridge lifts
  3. Inclement travel conditions or high impact closures on I-90 over Snoqualmie pass
  4. High impact alerts on I-5 between Olympia and Tacoma
     

There is no change to WSDOT email notifications.


Please let us know if you have any questions.
