Why the Alaskan Way is such a tough nut

Even as most – not all – of the political leaders in Seattle and Olympia seem to have settled on a tunnel as a replacement for the elevated Alaskan Way viaduct, the people of Seattle are nowhere near as uniform in their view.

The Elway Poll asked them what they think, and here is what – in a Seattle Times story – it found:

• 38% – new/repaired elevated viaduct.

• 35% – tunnel.

• 21% – surface street option.

• 6% – no opinion.
