Driving to SeaTac Airport in the morning.I live in NCW and it usually takes me about 2hours and 45 min to get to SeaTaC airport without traffic. I need to catch an 11am Monday morning flight so I need to be at the airport about 10am. My question is how much extra time should I allow for driving to the airport coming from westbound I-90 for traffic on a Monday morning?

2If you need to be at SeaTac at 10 via I-90 you will be passing through Bellevue and catching the I-405 south to Renton/Tukwila. 9:30 is the tail end of rush hour - it could be clear, or it could be bad - no way to tell in advance. Even the stretch before Bellevue (Issaquah to Bellevue) on I-90 can get real slow. You'd think Seattleites would be used to the rain, but no - every time it rains the traffic gets bad. And when it's bad it takes an hour to get from Bellevue to Tukwila and another 20 minutes to get to SeaTac. Best plan for the worst and plan an hour to an hour and a half for travelling Bellevue to SeaTac. You'll probably get to SeaTac way too early, but better safe than late (and very sorry).

4Leaving an hour to catch your flight is just asking for trouble anyway. I've spent that long in a security line at SeaTac.
I don't have a clue where NCW is, but CascadeBob's advice is solid. With very few alternative routes, all the major highways around Seattle are vulnerable to mishaps--think tandem tractor trailers overturning, spilling flammable fuel on the roadway. Leave extra time, and bring a book to read.
