Seattle port proposes $300M into waterfront tunnel

2 02 2010

The Port of Seattle is proposing an investment of up to $300 million in the $2 billion tunnel proposed to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct along the downtown Seattle waterfront.

The port released a draft of its agreement with the state Monday for the project.

The port’s proposed contribution aims to promote freight mobility and access for cruise lines and others who use the traffic corridor.

The current elevated highway is 57 years old and in danger of collapsing in a severe earthquake.


Stay tuned as I post video/pics of this weekend’s Central Waterfront Tour!
