Marches, a concert and a Seahawks game scheduled for the coming three days, Thursday through Saturday, November 4 – 6, could produce traffic delays. Motorists should plan their travels accordingly to avoid traffic congestion. The Seattle Department of Transportation encourages drivers to help reduce traffic and their carbon footprint by trying alternate modes of travel such as Metro Transit, riding the Sounder commuter train, taking Link light rail, carpooling, bicycling or even walking, if feasible.
