Seattle’s Waterfront by Land, Sea and Sky!

Image 3 - ferris wheel from water (1) RESIZEWaterfront Seattle hosted a mobile workshop on Sunday as part of the 2013 Rail-Volution Conference.  The workshop gave participants a chance to see and explore our changing waterfront through three different vantage points. 

By land: A tour of Milepost 31 and a walk to the SR-99 Tunnel construction site to get an up-close view of how the world’s largest tunnel boring machine is transforming the city. By sea:  Aboard an Argosy Cruise to imagine how the waterfront will change with the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and replacement of the Elliott Bay Seawall.  And by sky: By riding on the Great Wheel and looking down onto a future urban street that will accommodate all modes of travel and connect with the city’s transportation system. 

The tours were led by WSDOT’s Matt Preedy, DPD’s Marshall Foster and SDOT’s Angela Brady.  For more information on Rail-Volution and the other mobile workshops go here: http://www.railvolution.org/conference-program/mobile-workshops-2013#10
