A list of great/not-so-great moments in Seattle transportation history that’s in the Times today includes this line:
1984 Ã¢â‚¬â€ Scandal-plagued high-level West Seattle Bridge survives referendum and opens.
Had no idea, about the scandal OR the vote — just the freighter crash that accelerated the bridge work.

(We weren’t here in the eighties.)
