Take a spin through the new SR 99 bored tunnel and along Alaskan Way

Curious about how driving through the bored tunnel may look and feel? WSDOT in partnership with SDOT, King County Metro and the Port of Seattle developed two simulation videos that are now posted to YouTube.  The first video shows the current design concept for the proposed SR 99 bored tunnel.

The second video depicts our proposed plan to build a new Alaskan Way boulevard in the footprint of the current viaduct. Removal of the viaduct will allow creation of a great new public open space on the waterfront.
