$15 minimum-wage march Thursday to affect traffic on Tukwila International Boulevard

A march from SeaTac to Seattle Thursday morning organized by Working Washington will affect traffic on Tukwila International Boulevard.

The group, which successfully promoted a $15 minimum-wage initiative in SeaTac, has received special permits from cities on the march route.

Marchers will leave the SeaTac Hilton at 9 a.m. Thursday and arrive at Seattle City Hall 4:30 p.m.

The march will enter Tukwila on Tukwila International Blvd near the Sound Transit Station on Southcenter Boulevard at approximately 10:30 a.m. Marchers will take the right lane of the highway as they proceed northbound.

They will turn right on South 112 Street, left on East Marginal Way South, then right on Boeing Access Road. They will proceed eastbound and cross over I-5.

Marchers will turn left on Martin Luther King Way South and proceed northbound in the right lane as they leave Tukwila at approximately 12:30 P.M.

"Tukwila Police will provide traffic control and assist the marchers to get through our city safely," said Officer Mike Murphy, a spokesman for the Tukwila Police Department. "We are working with the adjoining cities to coordinate our response."
