Latest proposal for Seattle's waterfront
A few omissions in the illustration
The landscape artist’s conception of the new waterfront is lovely [“After the viaduct, city sees ‘a waterfront for all,’” page one, July 13], but omitted the Interstate 5 and surface-street gridlock from decreased traffic capacity and drivers avoiding the tunnel tolls. It is also weak on parking lots for the hordes wishing to use the promenade, but not fortunate enough to live within walking distance of the park.
However, it was good to see there will be a seawall-free beach so the Pioneer Square residents and sports enthusiasts can enjoy a quick dip in a dirty industrial waterway.
