Your Viaduct Watch for the Week of May 16th-20th

Each week, we take a peek into the public project we all love, loathe, and live to talk about: the ongoing battle for a Viaduct replacement.

Tunnel-gate got even more interesting this week with a big kerfuffle over voting, some cancelled meetings, and more! Here's the rundown, along with the week's news.

Viaduct status: Standing, with lots of cars stopped on top of it.
Recent earthquakes: Des Moines saw some shaking!
Annoying shutdowns on the horizon: Lane reduction-gate continues until 2013.
What we're getting: Well if nobody votes on it, we're getting squat!

· So that vote on whether we'd get to vote? Didn't happen. [SW]
· And so "hastily" became Seattle's word of the week. [Seattlest]
· Then there was a ton of work last weekend. [KOMO]
· Oh yeah, we cut a bunch of lanes too. [Seattlest]
· Here's how that went when the commute started. [WSB]
· Apparently our gridlock isn't that bad anyway, so we should stop whining. {PubliCola]
· But apparently building the tunnel will cause some! [Crosscut]
· The end result: 4th Avenue is crazy dangerous. [P-I]
