Get Motivated crowd expected to slow traffic Tuesday
DENVER, Colorado – Heavy traffic is expected in Denver because of a motivational speaking event at the Pepsi Center.
About 18,000 people are expected to attend the Get Motivated seminar on Tuesday. The Pepsi Center says that could add an extra 4,000 to 5,000 to the morning and evening commute.
Former First Lady Laura Bush, former Denver Broncos John Elway and former Secretary of State Colin Powell are among those scheduled to speak.
In addition to those gathered at the Pepsi Center, organizers say more people will also be watching the all-day event by satellite at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver and the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs.
