"In some places, the new Seattle monorail will need to rise above the height limits set by current zoning rules, perhaps soaring to 65 feet above the ground." ... "The guideway has to be high enough to allow trucks and boats to pass underneath but can't drop too steeply from bridges to a lower level." ... "Some critics say the proposed changes go too far." ... "We were promised a monorail that would be minimally intrusive. This doesn't sound like it."
