The viaduct replacement is back in the news. Or better, it continues to be in the news. The city council will be voting Oct. 19 for an agreement to help with the state plan to replace it with a tunnel. The Times transportation reporter Mike Lindblom explains all this in his story much better than I could.
As I stood sketching the Battery Street Tunnel at Aurora Avenue this afternoon I tried to imagine how convenient it would be to drive through it and come back out at Qwest Field. But since I don’t usually drive in the city, what I will enjoy the most when or if a tunnel gets built is a viaduct-free waterfront.
