World class cities don't build concrete highways over their waterfronts (Mar 8th)

...Or do they?

Re-Elevate Portland

Measure 2 on Seattle's March 13 special election ballot presents a disastrously flawed option for replacing the Alaskan Way Viaduct, as many recent editorials and guest columns in Seattle media have pointed out:
The new viaduct would be:
  • Bigger — at least 50% larger than the current one
  • Noisier — louder traffic noise on our waterfront
  • Uglier — 50% more cement and shadows
Don't let this plan ever get off the ground. Vote NO on 2...and watch for the finale of this special series in the next few days!
