OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Transportation Department says vehicles traveled a record of more than 57 billion miles on public roadways in the state last year, an increase of fourth-tenths percent from 2011.

The department’s annual Corridor Capacity Report says congestion - vehicle hours of delay - increased 1.5 percent in the period.

The report says there were 165 miles of routinely congested highways in 2013 in Washington.
