Thousands of graduates and their fans will take over the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium on Saturday, June 14. Whether or not you will be in a cap and gown, holding a sign for your favorite graduate or driving into Seattle, you will be impacted by heavy traffic.

While the ceremony doesn’t start until 1:30pm, traffic will start backing up as early as 10am on Interstate 5, State Route 520 and all city streets in the University District. Best advice? Leave early! Find your parking spot and grab a coffee! Traffic will remain heavy throughout the day until the early evening.

And don’t forget about dad! Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15! Traffic should not be as congested as Saturday, however, there are several smaller graduation ceremonies that will take place around the UW. Just give yourself a few extra minutes to get to your Father’s Day brunch/lunch/dinner.

Traffic tools

Here are some tools from WSDOT to help you navigate around traffic this weekend.
