Walking from viaduct

With days left till the big viaduct vote in Seattle, Times columnist Danny Westneat reports on something useful: A walk along and underneath the Alaskan Way viaduct, describing in some detail what (and who) he finds there.

He winds up where a seemingly growing number of people do, with the idea that the viaduct, or at least the most critical 10 blocks or so of it, could usefully be turned into a street-level expressway, a move that might make for some substantial spinoff inprovements in one of the least well-developed sectors of the city's downtown core. He makes one of the clearest cases yet for voting a double-no on the ballot barely a week away.
