– “Presidents Day Airport Travel Expected to Top Last Year”
“Heavy Traffic and Delays Expected on Drives During Peak Travel”

“On the heels of announcing a seventh consecutive record year, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport expects to welcome more than 650,000 travelers through the airport over the Presidents Day Weekend. From Thursday, February 15 to Monday, February 19, traffic through the airport is anticipated to be about five percent higher than the same five-day period last year.

“With increased number of travelers, the Port forecasts heavy congestion on the roads leading to the airport. Drivers arriving, picking up or dropping off passengers during peak periods should plan an extra 15-20 minutes of travel time or use alternative routes.

“Peak traffic congestion occurs on the Departure level from approximately 4:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. During the middle of the day, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., both Arrival and Departure drives experience backups. In the evenings, the Arrivals drive experiences heavy traffic from about 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m,” from the Port of Seattle.
