State Highway 970 near Mile Marker 5

Cle Elum, WashingtonMay 10, 20061 Comments

Heading east out of town the speed limit slowly increases from 45 to 55 and then to 60 at about mile marker 5. Police patrol fairly heavily vehicles entering this slow down from the west (mile marker 5) or sit on the side of the road near Airport Road to get folks speeding up too early for the 60 MPH stetch or who failed to slow down in the 55 MPH stretch. Both State Police and Kittitas County Sheriffs deputies can be found on this stretch of road.

I got caught in this speed trap yesterday by the State Police as I was coming into Cle Elum from the east on 970. The speed drops from 60 to 55 without any warning at mile marker 3. I feel confident that the police park at that mile marker out of sight and catch numerous speeders.
