Businesses concerned about seawall project

Seawall neglect would destroy businesses

Businesses on Seattle’s waterfront are justifiably concerned about the partial loss of customers during the four-year seawall replacement [“Pier merchants say city shy on seawall support,” NWWednesday, May 8]. The city has done much to mitigate losses and possibly can do more.

But compare that to the 100 percent loss of business when the seawall crumbles, as it will in time without replacement, and once again Elliott Bay laps its waters against the hillside to the east.
