It’s a big weekend traffic-wise:

- PAX WEST gaming expo runs Friday through Monday at the Washington State Convention Center, and 9th Ave will be closed between Pine and Pike streets.
- Mariners vs. Oakland Safeco Field at 1 p.m. Friday, 6:10 p.m. Saturday, and 1:10 p.m. Sunday, then they play Houston at 3:30 p.m. Monday.
- Since Monday is Labor Day, all government offices will be closed, including all branches of the Seattle Public Library, and on-street paid parking is free on Monday. Banks and schools also will be closed.
- Metro Transit will operate on a Sunday schedule on Monday.
