May 1st Rally and March

When: Thursday, May 1, 2014, 3 – 4:30pm
Where: Judkins Park to Westlake Park

The rally will leave Judkins Park—at 20th Ave S. and S. Dearborn Street in the Central District—at 3 PM and head toward Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. The marchers will move north on 20th to South Jackson Street; west on Jackson to Boren Avenue; north on Boren to Madison Street; west on Madison to Fourth Avenue; north on Fourth to Pine Street and into Westlake Park for a rally. There is a possibility that Fourth Avenue will be closed during the rally at Westlake Park.

Seattle Police will escort the marchers, and motorists should expect a rolling slowdown and heavy traffic as the procession moves along the route to Westlake Park. Considerable congestion will likely occur and impact traffic throughout the Downtown area during the afternoon commute.

There is also the possibility several other un-permitted demonstrations may be held in the evening at Seattle Central Community College and Youth Service Center at 12th and Alder. As the organizers of these events have not filed for permits, there is no official route map for these rallies.

On Thursday afternoon, May 1, downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill area transit service will be affected by street closures and traffic congestion associated with May Day activities.

During this event, Fourth Avenue is expected to be closed for about an hour between 3:30 – 4:30 PM, and Pine Street is expected to be closed for about four hours between 3 – 7 PM.

When streets are closed, Fourth Avenue bus routes will travel instead via Third Avenue, and Pine Street buses will travel via Union Street.

Metro routes 10, 11, 43, 49, 64, 250, 252, 257, 260, 265, 268, 301, 306, 308, 311 and 312; Sound Transit Express routes 522, 545 and 554, and all other Community Transit and Sound Transit buses that normally travel via Fourth Avenue will be rerouted during the respective street closures.

All bus service that travels near or through the downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill areas may be subject to delays during and after Thursday afternoon’s events. Bus riders are advised to plan accordingly, revise travel plans if necessary and allow plenty of travel time.
