A couple of weekend traffic notes

Peg Neilsen at SDOT shares a couple of traffic items that could affect getting around Beacon Hill on Saturday:

March Against Violence – 12 noon
600 participants expected

March starts at Rainier Beach High School, Rainier Avenue S and S Henderson Street and heads north on Rainier to S Graham Street, west on Graham to the Aki Kurose Middle School at 42nd Avenue S.


Seattle Sounders versus Kansas City Wizards – 7:30 p.m.
34,000 + spectators

Match is at Qwest Field. Occidental Avenue S will be closed north and south bound from S King Street to S Royal Brougham Way. Due to construction in the area, motorists need to allow extra time and check for the latest update on the SR 519 project at www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/sr519
