Increased traffic anticipated from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
With major events occurring around Seattle Center, to include the Get Motivated Seminar at KeyArena, the City of Seattle warns travelers to expect higher traffic volumes around the campus area, and on nearby streets and highways from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Commuters are advised to consider an early departure or to delay their trip to avoid traffic related impacts.
Prior to departing their office or home, drivers are advised to check the Travelers Information Map (http://web5.seattle.gov/travelers) for up-to-date information on citywide traffic flows and to view traffic camera images. If possible, the City recommends using alternate forms of transportation, such as light rail or commuter rail, to avoid roadway related issues.
