Washington Weigh Station & DOT Information

Washington state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 59

Washington (along with Oregon and California) issues CVSA stickers for trucks and trailers that have passed inspections. The stickers are color coded and have cut-outs on the corners. This system allows a DOT officer to look at your windshield and know at a glance if you’ve passed an inspection and when.

Washington State weigh stations use Norpass transponders rather than PrePass transponders.

Truckers traveling from the Seattle area to middle or eastern Washington State will have to cross the Wenatche Mountain Range which is part of the larger Cascade Mountain Range that extends from British Columbia all the way down to Northern California. Truckers don’t refer to it as that- instead, they’ll ask on the c.b. radio “what’s Snoqualmie doing?” Snoqualmie is the major mountain pass that truckers will cross on I 90. Take Snoqualmie seriously in winter weather conditions. It is one of several roadways in the state of Washinton where truckers are required to carry tire chains from November 1st through April 1st- even if they don’t plan to use them.

Other Washington State roadways where trucks that are 10,000 lbs or more are required to carry chains are I 82 from Ellensburg to Selah, Blewett Pass on route 97, Stevens Pass on route 2, White Pass on route 12, Satus Pass on route 97, Chinook Pass on route 410, Sherman Pass on route 20, route 155 from Omak to Nespelem, route 970 from Cle Elum to Teanaway, route 542 (Mount Baker Highway) from mile post 22 to mile post 57.

Trucks that are 10,000 lbs or more that are traveling these roadways during the restricted months are required to carry the minimum required chains plus two extra chains in case the road conditions require more chains.

Truckers headed to Spokane will want to make sure they have their pronunciation right. It’s Spokane, rhyming with can, not rhyming with cane. The folks who live there tend to be a bit particular about that!

If you’re trying to talk to other truckers on a north/south route like I 5, you’ll need to switch your cb radio to channel 17. Truckers run channel 17 from Lost Hills, California, to the Canadian border on north/south routes, and channel 19 on east/west routes.

The Washington fuel tax rate is $0.36 per gallon of diesel. This rate is scheduled to increase by $0.015 per gallon on July 1, 2008.
