BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Spring is here and it’s time for the Skagit County Tulip Festival and the traffic that comes with it.

The roads leading up to the tulips near La Conner and Mount Vernon will be busy and there will be plenty of roadside distractions.

The Washington State Patrol says people can expect heavier traffic on I-5 between exit 221 in Conway and exit 230 in Burlington, SR20 between Burlington and Anacortes, and SR536 Memorial Highway between Mount Vernon and SR20.

There will be many pedestrians and bicyclists in festival areas on Memorial Highway between Beaver Marsh Road and Bradshaw Road.

The Tulip Festival runs through the end of April.
