Eight Options on Table for Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct

State County and city officials revealed eight new options for dealing with Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct, a damaged double-decker inner city freeway.

"City, state and county officials said they're considering two elevated highway replacements, two tunnels, three options dispersing viaduct traffic onto surface roadways and one option referred to as 'the trench.'"

"Members of a committee representing neighborhoods and other viaduct interests were full of questions about how much the eight designs would cost, how they'd accommodate traffic and how they'd affect travel times. Answers aren't expected until more analysis is finished in August."
