Issaquah residents commuting to or from downtown Seattle on Tuesday afternoon should prepare for delays, King County Metro Transit advised riders Monday.

Transit service — and all traffic — in downtown Seattle is likely to be delayed during the afternoon commute and into the evening due to a May Day march and other activities.

The transit agency alerted bus riders to prepare for transit service delays and possible reroutes. The changes could affect bus service on surface streets and possibly the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel.

One march is planned to depart the Central District at 5 p.m. and travel along South Jackson Street to Fourth Avenue to the Wells Fargo Building on Third Avenue between Madison and Marion streets.

In addition, May Day activities in other locations could also delay or disrupt traffic and mass transit.

If possible, people may want to leave work early Tuesday. Travelers should also give themselves extra time to travel through the downtown area. Metro Transit may have to temporarily reroute buses if streets close or become blocked.

Metro Transit plans to use the Eye on the Metro Commute blog and Twitter account to inform customers about transit disruptions.
