There will be lots of traffic around Seattle Center and McCaw Hall Wednesday morning when people start showing up for the Starbucks shareholders meeting.
The Seattle Department of Transportation said drivers should expect heavy traffic because of the meeting and on-going construction projects in the area.
Expect traffic volumes to be higher than usual heading into and around Lower Queen Anne.
The meeting starts at 10 a.m. Wednesday, but doors open at 8 a.m. About 2,700 people are expected to attend.
There will be extra traffic heading out of the neighborhood from noon to 2 p.m.
Meanwhile, Howard Schultz will attend his last shareholders meeting as the company’s CEO.
Schultz announced he was stepping down in December.
Starbucks chief operating officer Kevin Johnson will become the new CEO on April 3.
Schultz will move to the role of executive chairman.
