Obama visit traffic advice

TRAFFIC

The trip is expected to significantly disrupt traffic because Obama is scheduled to arrive during the evening rush hour.

The presidential motorcade is expected to drive north through Seattle from Boeing Field on I-5, then to SR 520. Drivers should anticipate a rolling closure on I-5 as the president passes, then the 520 floating bridge will be shut down to allow Obama’s cars to drive across. The motorcade should exit at 84th Avenue Northeast and continue to Hunts Point.

Overall, avoid I-5 and 520 between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. To avoid the worst backups, try to leave Seattle before 5:00 p.m.  (from KING 5)
