KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The weekend construction and events calendar will have Seattle/Bellevue area drivers checking their traffic apps as frequently as Seahawk's coach Pete Carroll checks his playbook. And just like football, one bad hit could change the entire game.
"With construction closures on Interstate 5 and State Route 520, predicted sunny skies and a Seahawks game that sold out in three minutes, we're recommending drivers head into the weekend at the top of their driving game," said Jamie Holter, INRIX Traffic Analyst.
Construction closures on State Route 520 and Interstate 5 in downtown Seattle coupled with a capacity crowd at CenturyLink Field will have smart drivers planning ahead, mapping out alternate routes and downloading traffic apps that deliver traffic information on state highways, interstates and side roads.
