SEATTLE -- Puget Sound drivers need to be prepared for an extended commute home Tuesday as President Barack Obama arrives in town during the evening rush hour for a quick visit to raise funds for the Democratic National Committee.

After touching down around 3:15 p.m. at Boeing Field, Obama's first stop will be to a mansion in Seattle's Madrona neighborhood where 250 people will attend a fundraiser. From there, he'll head to Costco CEO Jim Sinegal's Eastside home at Hunt's Point for a fundraiser there.

Obama is scheduled to head back to Boeing Field and leave for another fund-raising stop in San Francisco just after 7:30 p.m.

Drivers should prepare for intermittent closures of roads and freeways around the Puget Sound region Tuesday evening as the president's motorcade travels between stops. This is on top of the I-90 lane closures for construction.

As of now, Obama is not scheduled to make any public appearances or comments during his stay in Seattle.
