WSDOT says that you may want to factor in some extra travel time if you’ll be hitting the roads this weekend.
President Obama is scheduled to be in the Puget Sound area Friday afternoon, June 24, through Saturday, June 25.
As with all visits by heads of state, drivers can expect significant delays and closures on state highways and surrounding streets. The Secret Service doesn’t release information about travel plans much ahead of time so your best bet is to stay connected with local media and follow @wsdot_traffic on Twitter.
We’re limited in the amount of information we can put out but we’ll do the best we can to let drivers know what is closed and where to avoid.
