Planned demonstrations & rallies expected on 5/1.
Tuesday, May 1, celebrated as International Worker’s Day, a number of planned demonstrations and rallies are expected to significantly impact transit and traffic around the city throughout the day. Please plan ahead for delays due to larger than normal crowds along demonstration routes and potential traffic disruptions. Also worth noting, the Mariners will also be hosting a game at Safeco Field at 7:10 PM with about 15,000 people expected to attend so normal game day traffic can be expected.
