Expect the usual peculiarities around the neighborhood when POTUS visits the area — hopefully without those Madrona booms. President Barack Obama arrives in Seattle Tuesday for a double-header of fundraising events including a return to the Madrona home of Bruce and Anne Blume.
With the traffic armageddon from I-90 construction work so far yet to materialize, the presidential motorcade will likely tie up 520 and area roads here and there through the day before and after the afternoon event in Madrona.
The stay will be a short one. Obama is slated to spend the night in San Francisco before a day of California events.
UPDATE: The West Seattle Blog reports that Obama is slated to touch down at Boeing Field around 3 PM and head directly for Madrona before heading over to the Eastside for a fundraising dinner. The route from
405 to 520 to Lake Washington Blvd Lake Washington Blvd to 520 has been busy with security preparations — we found no parking signs all through the Arboretum. There are no public appearances scheduled as part of the fundraising stops.
