Your Viaduct Watch for the Week of August 15th-19th

New, 2 comments

After weeks and weeks of boring Viaduct news, it totally went down this week. Elections! Arguments! Editorials! It was truly overwhelming. Lucky for you, we've broken it down.

Viaduct status: Upright. (And doomed.)
Recent earthquakes: A 2.8 on the Eastside.
Annoying shutdowns on the horizon: A couple lane reductions.
What we're getting: A tunnel, totally.

Here's a tiny fraction of what happened:

· The tunnel wins! [ST]
· And the work is totally starting! Heck, it started before the vote! [ST]
· The P-I talked to Mayor McGinn post-election. [P-I]
· And he wrote this thing for STB! [STB]
· PubliCola analyzed what happened, as they are wont to do. [PC]
· NPR left out the "S" in "WSDOT." And talked about the tunnel. [NPR]
