Seattle Waterfront Public Kick-Off Event

In Seattle, the process is underway to replace the aging Alaska Way Viaduct with a tunnel. When the hulking mass of the viaduct is removed, it will open up opportunities to redevelop the downtown Seattle waterfront. Towards that end, a Waterfront Public Kick-Off Event was held on February 17, 2011, at the Seattle Aquarium, to provide information and elicit input on the re-design process.
