Alaskan Viaduct Replacement

The Seattle Post put out a story today talking about the new replacement for the Seattle Viaduct.

The story discusses the new less lane tunnel as a good alternative for the present viaduct because of its integration of SOV and public transit services.

The only debate now involves the future funding of the project. Several new taxes and fees have been proposed to fund the project.

Found a map here:

This is a solid project, and I really approve of the tunnel. It's high time WSDOT does something...It's only been 19 years since Loma Prieta.

Using Alaskan Way as a feeder road for the freeway is good design, and keeps access to/from the waterfront without detracting from it in any way. If anything, drivers will be exposed to more development in the area they did not know existed, and might just stop on in and buy something.
