TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday updates/reminders, from back-to-school to back-to-football

Today is the first real full-strength morning of back-to-school week, since some schools that started back yesterday had special schedules. (If you missed our list of West Seattle school-zone and start-time changes, see them in our Wednesday coverage.) You can give today the added label of “back-to-football,” with the Seahawks’ first game of the year tonight at CenturyLink Field, and earlier events expected to complicate traffic in the south end of downtown starting hours earlier, with “Gameday Village” in Pioneer Square and a free pregame concert in the stadium (gates opening at 2:30 pm) – this SDOT alert explains how the day is set to unfold, including transit reroutes (no West Seattle routes involved at this point). Kickoff is just after 5:30, which means even if you’re just leaving early to watch it at home or your favorite bar, pm-commute traffic will start early today.

BRIDGE TWEETS: SDOT reminds us that it’s launched a new Twitter account for bridge-open/close tweets around the city – follow it here.
