SPD confirmed the training Thursday morning but referred CHS to the federal agency for more information. We’ve asked DHS for more on the nature of the training and the planned duration. The federal agency offers local law enforcement agencies a wide variety of “training opportunities,” according to its website.
Thursday morning, traffic backed-up to Boren and beyond as vehicles were re-routed around the training area for access to I-5. There were no local announcements of the training session.
You can check out the latest conditions on the CHS Traffic Cameras page.
@jseattle Police training at 6th & Madison. Traffic onto I-5 rerouted so all of Madison is at a standstill.
