Metro’s Thursday PM Commute Wrap-up; Ms Home Season Starts Friday, Plus ST’s Capitol Hill Station Concrete Pour

At 7:00 PM, Metro’s Thursday evening commute
is winding down with no significant disruptions
or delays in transit service to report.

The 2011 Ms season starts this Friday, 4/8.

Traffic in the SODO, Stadium, Pioneer Square & downtown
Seattle areas may be congested on game days.

King County Metro Transit and its regional transit partners
can get Ms fans to and from points near Safeco Field
 via
transit-priority routes that are not shared by general purpose
traffic – the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT),
the SODO Busway and the Link light rail corridor – making
transit a great option for getting to and from games.

Fans should use regularly published schedules and expect
possible delays when traffic is heavy.  Regular fares apply.

Routes 15, 18, 21, 56 & 132 are rerouted off of 1st Av S in
both directions between S Lander St and S Atlantic St /
Edgar Martinez Dr S after weekday evening, weekend &
holiday games.  The rerouted buses serve all posted stops
along 4th Av S while on reroute.

Sound Transit’s University Link Light Rail 
Capitol Hill Station Concrete Pour this Friday, 4/8.

On Friday, April 8, starting as early as 6 AM, Sound Transit
will begin pouring another section of the Capitol Hill Station
concrete floor.

Expect traffic congestion in the Capitol Hill area along
Broadway Av E between E Denny Way & E John St for
up to 9 hours.  Service will continue with delays.
Please plan accordingly.

Mariners and Sounder Games on Saturday, 4/9.

Let transit take you out to the ballgames!  Both the Mariners
and the Sounders FC will have Saturday games.

Game time for the Sounders FC will be at 1:00 PM at Qwest
Field and the Mariners game will be at 6:10 PM at Safeco Field.

Metro has many routes that are a short walk to Qwest Field.  
And, while there are a few revisions to traffic patterns and transit
service in the vicinity of Safeco Field since last season, transit
service provided by King County Metro and its regional transit
partners is an excellent option for getting to and from both games.

We’ll get you to the games!
