    Sloan Creek TH, not sure which bridge you're referring to.

    We went up the North Fork Sauk Trail, road was repaired a long time ago if I remember right. Tenpeak is definitely a worthy side trip if in the GP area - a few photos:

    Have a WA DOT related question. Is anyone aware of how they treat the pass roads in snow around here? Are you experiencing more than usual underbody rust on your vehicle?

    Have my ‘15 suv in the shop to get new struts, brakes, & transmission service at 75k. It’s been my steady ride up to Stevens with 40ish trips a year and additional local resort days sprinkled in. The shop (I trust) is telling me my underbody reminds him of a east coast car. They’ve had a helleva time breaking free seized bolts etc. Showed me while on lift... disappointing.
    Anyone have some maneuvers that limit exposure? Does it come down to power washing underbody very frequently?

    They have been treating the roads for some time with a corrosive product

    SOB. I guess it’s a safety trade off vs vehicle longevity/repairs. It is, what it is.
    Still makes me want to pee in WSDOT lawn

    ya gotta find the ruts once you get to the low lands and spray the undercarriage when they’ve puddled. pro-tip, on the extreme wet days, hover close to the big rigs flank.

    You have to use hot water to be effective

    My Ohio car, a Subaru SVX was just fixed and a test drive showed me how corrosive their winter road treatments are. Rolled the window half way down while going fast and the sunroof blew off. The tray it sits in was totally rusted out. Funny that most everything else isn't decayed or corroded, just the sunroof pan where the road salt/water sat and didn't drain out. It was fatal to my sunroof.

    DOT have been busy grinding down the ruts on I90 between Issaquah and North Bend on the east bound lanes. If they do west bound things might get rusty.

    The smooth is nice though.
