Joe Biden is slated to be in Seattle this Friday and Saturday. Because of this, he's traveling through Sea-Tac.

As you can imagine, with the president's appearance in any part of the world, including Seattle, there will be increased security which can also mean increased travel delays.

Why is Joe Biden in Seattle this weekend?

As part of his campaign trail, he's helping raise funds according to the Seattle Times. There's a Friday reception to support the Biden Victory Fund at $500 per person.

President Biden is heading to Seattle from San Francisco. With his arrival at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, there is bound to be delays. Maybe not extended delays just for him, but even something like half-hour delays within the window of his arrival and departure would be expected.

What kind of delays can we expect with flights and road in Seattle?

He's flying in Friday late-afternoon/early-evening and leaving Saturday early afternoon. Just a quick overnight stay.

According to King 5 in Seattle, airport policy is air traffic is halted 30 minutes before he lands as well as 30 minutes afterwards as well.

If you're flying out around 5:15 p.m. on Friday you can probably expect some delays as that's when he's expected to arrive in Seattle. As well as 2:15 p.m. on Saturday.

Though the location of his fundraising events are only available to those who RSVP'd, Any major road should expect delays as well. I mean, it's already gonna be congested during those times as it is being a weekend in Seattle. Last time Joe Biden was in Seattle they had a temporary closer on I-90. Best to keep an eye on the WSDOT app for info if you happen to be in the area during this time.
