Pointlessness at the Polls, the aftermath

March 16, 2007 at 5:20 pm | In Transportation, Viaduct vote | 3 Comments

-We’ve been watching the additional ballot counts roll in each day since voting ended on Tuesday. The tunnel option has held steady at 70% no, but replacement-a-duct has lost ground day by day … on election night, it was at 55% no; tonight, that’s up to 57% no.

-Speaking of the viaduct, we know a bit more about exactly when it will be shut down next weekend for the big inspection. At least it won’t be out of commission the entire weekend.

  1. If you haven’t read what Dow Constantine has to say about what’s next and things we need to do now to start fixing the Alaska Way corridor traffic issues, it’s worth a read

    All those things see pretty logical no matter what ends up being the ultimate end solution for the viaduct.

  2. And just so there’s no mistaking Dow’s intent, he says unequivocally that all the improvements he calls for must be implemented *before* the Viaduct comes down.

    Give it up, Viaduct-haters. That ought to take 20 years at least. DOT will repair it, and we’ll drive it.
