Drivers in Seattle can expect traffic to be disrupted Wednesday at least three times for May Day events. King County Metro Transit says its service may be affected, and riders should be prepared for delays and congestion. Metro will be tweeting updates at “kcmetrobus” and on its blog, Eye on Your Metro Commute.
The planned May Day events:
