What’s Moving Seattle | This Week UPDATE: Revive I-5 Postponed

There’s only ONE game this week if they win again tonight!

We know–they’re in Fairfax, Virginia for game 3 of 5 in the WNBA Finals, just a hop over the Potomac from D.C., but fans might decide to stay home to watch the game, or stay put for a while at a favorite sports pub to watch…leaving streets with lighter traffic. What?! It could happen! (and this last scheduled I-5 Revive weekend would me a good time for it…)

Let us just take this moment to honor them….
