Traffic Advisory: Update on Microsoft Meeting Traffic Tomorrow


Tomorrow, September 18, Microsoft will hold its annual meeting at Safeco Field from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Over 22,000 people will be attending the meeting and the subsequent traffic is expected to impact both the morning and afternoon peak-hour traffic. 300 charter buses transporting the attendees will be exiting via I-5 at the Forest Street off ramp. The buses will proceed north on 6th Avenue and then west on Holgate to the unloading locations. The 4th Avenue off ramp will mainly be used by autos heading to the Safeco Field and Qwest Event Center garages. Traffic near the garage entrances will be very heavy as both parking facilities are expected to fill to capacity.
