Red Echo

September 29, 2008

A group called Congress for the New Urbanism has released a report listing their picks for the top ten in-city elevated highways that ought to be knocked down and replaced with something more livable. The Alaskan Way Viaduct here in Seattle, of course, is first on their list.

The only good thing about the viaduct is the spectacular view of the city and the bay from the upper (northbound) deck. I’ll miss that when the old wreck is gone, but I have no doubt that the city will benefit from the change.
