Seattle Growth Podcast 2.4: the Sonics and Seattle traffic

How would a return of the Seattle Supersonics affect your evening commute?

Episode 4 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, season 2, explores how each of the two arena locations under consideration by the city—a renovated Key Arena in Seattle Center or a new SODO arena—would affect traffic on game or event nights.

Husky great and three-time NBA All-Star Detlef Schrempf discusses his time playing at Seattle’s Key Arena. Scott Kubly, director of Seattle’s Department of Transportation, lays out the strengths and weaknesses of the transportation network serving each location. And Martin Duke, editor-in-chief of the Seattle Transit Blog, weighs in on the current and future state of transit serving the two potential homes for a new Sonics franchise.
