Seattle Debating Removing Alaskan Way Viaduct

And the leading option among political leaders is to build an old time replacement for the freeway that runs across the city’s waterfront.

“The alternative with the most momentum, backed by Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire (D) and powerful business interests, is a gigantic bored tunnel — a concrete-heavy, emissions-intensive, multi-billion-dollar piece of old-school highway infrastructure devoted almost entirely to cars, shuttling suburban drivers past the urban core. What’s worse, it is being rammed through over the express opposition of Seattle voters.”
