Election Demonstrations

The Presidential election remains undecided. Demonstrations have been reported in Washington D.C., New York City, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, Philadelphia, and elsewhere.

The National Guard was activated to support law enforcement in downtown Portland after a protest turned violent. Crews continue to overnight in Vancouver, Washington, away from protest activity.

Activists blocked traffic on I-94, southeast of the city center, causing localized disruption. Transit routes connecting downtown and MSP airport were not impacted.

Small-scale peaceful demonstrations at the Maricopa County elections department are ongoing; no anticipated impact to operations. The final results of the election are still unknown. Risk of unrest will remain elevated, with operational impact still possible.

The decision has been made by the Company to relocate crews away from downtown Denver until November 11th.

The decision has been made by the Company to relocate crews away from downtown Seattle until November 11th.
