    I think the condos the developers, err, ad sponsors would like to build in the viaducts place would also “block our view” and “cut us off” from the water. How is a tunnel or more traffic idling on downtown streets going to cause less traffic and pollution?!? I like the happy bird sounds at the end. Nice touch.

    I know I for one would rather walk through a few blocks of new condos than the noisy homeless-riddled wasteland that is now under the viaduct.

    You’re right, genius. It’s elevated highways that attract a bad element to our cities! The rest of downtown is full of condos and free of transients- it all makes sense now.

    The wasteland is between your ears.

    And obviously the condos will go right up to the water with razor wire to stop you from using Alaskan Way sidewalks. But the Viaduct is egalitarian because everyone gets to enjoy the lovely views from it. Everyone who can afford a car, that is. And should be watching the damn road.

    Let’s play nice now!

    I for one am of the opinion that each and every option is F-U-C-K-E-D, FUCKED! None of them seem to provide any reasonable solution to problem. None of them is going to please everyone, in a case like this where one of the major arguments is aesthetics, I say screw it. Give me the cheapest option that gets me where I’m going as quickly as possible and I’ll enjoy the scenery there.

    Why don’t we send the container terminals to
    Tacoma, because that’s what really cuts us off from the waterfront. We don’t like all the truck traffic either. The city belongs to PEOPLE walking and smelling the flowers, not trucks and cars and all those nasty cranes and top-loaders and all that other equipment that interferes with our view of the waterfront.
