Seattle police say a protest that disrupted downtown traffic for about two hours Wednesday has dissipated and traffic is returning to normal.
Police had earlier urged commuters to avoid Second Avenue and Union Street, where the protest was blocking the street in front of Chase Bank in the Russell Investments Center.
Police said all southbound lanes of traffic were blocked on Second Avenue.
According to 350 Seattle: Climate Justice, 130 people planned to protest Chase Bank over its investments in fossil fuels.
The group said protesters planned to bring tepees and tripods with people locked in the top.
Climate groups have staged previous protests in downtown Seattle.
