Plan for possible traffic delays
Wednesday morning, August 15, at least 300 members of the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters (IABPFF) will take part in a memorial march to honor firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty. The IABPFF Memorial March will start at 9 a.m. at Westlake Park and move north on Fourth Avenue to Denny Way, then turn west on Denny to the First Church located at 180 Denny Way where a memorial service will be held. Seattle Police will escort the marchers as they move north through downtown and on up to the Seattle Center. Expect traffic congestion and a rolling slowdown as the participants will be walking in the street.
