From the Seattle Times:
The work includes:
Stabilizing viaduct footings near Washington Street.
Building a new interchange near Qwest and Safeco fields to help trucks and commuters to move between the waterfront and south downtown.
Relocating two electrical transmission lines and five feeder lines from the viaduct to Western and First avenues.
Adding lighting, fire suppression, seismic upgrades and ventilation to the Battery Street tunnel.
Strengthening steel structures from Lenora Street to the Battery Street Tunnel.
Replacing the highway from Holgate Street to Royal Brougham Way.
Mayor Nickels, clearly chastened by the result, says he “will not be advocating any particular solution.”
